Calculate the brine composition – wet curing

Amount of meat: kg



You need:

litres of water
dag (1 dag = 10 gram) of curing salt

 

Wet curing is readily applied both by amateurs and professionals. You can apply this method for curing all types of meat. You can prepare a very mild mixture of low salt content, but also a very salty one. You can add different ingredients to your brine to make it meet your expectations and tastes. The brine strength (water to salt ratio) and the time for which meat is soaked in it are the two factors that affect the salt concentration in the finished product. The condiments that you add to the brine will impart a unique taste to your products. You are the chef and you are in control of the process. There is no one universal recipe for brine. Some say that only strong solutions should be used, others prefer medium or weak solutions.
