  • @SpiceCooks   The brine is reading funny here -- how much salt and how much b sugar?

    190 cups apparently.
    Easiest way to do a brine is equal parts sugar and salt. Stir it to dissolve. Then place a raw egg (with shell intact of course) in the brine. If the egg sinks, then you need more sugar and salt. If the egg floats, then the brine is saturated and anymore sugar and salt you add won't dissolve.

    Oh, remove egg once it floats and put it back where you got it from.
