started brewing wine today, and i’m cleaning some deer bones that i found on the side of the road today..i’d say today is looking to be pretty good so far, ehy.
right now i’m in Maceration stage which is; Trying to remove as much loose fur/flesh as you can by hand. Don’t yank it it, that can break the bones! If it is really dry you may be able to cut off parts with scissors. Then put the animal remains in plastic lidded container fully immersing it in water. This is rotting process. Involving the living bacteria that break down the flesh on the bones. As the oils rise to the top of the water and flesh falls off the water will become nasty/smelly. As it does, pour it out and replace with new clean water. Repeat this process until all you are left with is bone. Note, maceration greatly slows in cold/er weather because the bacteria die off.- jana millers version
