Hi, gotta question re the bark tanning for anyone who might know... So I have cooked up (simmered for half hour or so in an old metal bucket) a batch of acacia bark a couple of weeks ago for tanning a kangaroo hide, which is now sitting in plastic buckets inside (hide still salting) The problem is, in taking too long to get the hide cleaned up and ready there is now small bits of mould forming on the surface of the bark solution. Does anyone know if it would still be ok to use or if it would be bound to damage the hide? Reckon I could just scrape off the mould, boil it up again, or treat it in some way to not have it go to waste? Thanks!

They do that. Never been a problem for me. Just keep the hide down below the surface.
