so i just made my first pickles and tried this yesterday (7.5 weeks after) and they taste good...but i would say that they are a little to vinegary. i did alot of reading on here prior to making them and decided on 3 cups water to 2 3/4 cups vinegar. so i think next time ii'm going to use less vinegar and more water to even that flavor out. my question is this...what is the minimum amount of vinegar i can use to properly pickle things? is there a golden rule for this? will less vinegar still pick but take longer?
