    While reading about other brine processes, alot of them indicate the brine time for oysters and clams should only be 30 to 40 minutes.  Your time states 30 to 40 hours.  Is this correct?

    I've personally never heard of brining for that long. my father used to only brine for 90 minutes or so, and his oysters were delicious.

    I have never brined oysters or clams for 30-40 hours....

    30-40 minutes is what most folks use for them.

    And BTW!!
