Hey guys. I'm at he end of a pickle and everything was great up until two days ago. The hair started falling out. Do you think it could be because I didn't stir it enough? The hides all sunk so nothing was out of the water and the skin is still nice and white. No rotting at all but the hair is coming out. Is there a way to stop it?

Thanks for any advice
Oh and I'm using the alum method

What technique are you using? How many days did you have them soak? I think it’s generally soaking too long but sometimes it’s just the fur and there’s nothing you can do.

I see you said alum method and I just didn’t read all the way! So I do 2 days in then I pull them out to peel off the fat and membrane them back in for another 5 days stirring twice a day. Did you do longer than 7 days?
