keep in mind that if you add salty liquids it is recommended to slightly reduce the salt used, just as if you add sweet liquids reduce the amount of sugar in a brine. also keep in mind that you would rather be saying "i wish i had brined longer/stronger" after your meal than " i wish i hadnt brined as long/strong" imo brining is something you want to ease into and take lots of advice.
i know the first time i went solo i got a little over agressive. it was kinda strong.
