Default Fermented Pickle Disaster-G

Two things I have heard can cause this. You waited too long after
picking your cucs before pickling, or the temp was too high.


Well, they were picked over a period of about 5 days and the AC is on
when it gets over 70F in the house.

I usually ferment them for two weeks and then refrigerate them.

I wonder if they will ferment in the beer fridge at 40F. I just started
a new batch today and maybe I will put them in after the first week.
