Corned Beef

I'm brining a brisket for corned beef.  The first time I did it, I didn't salt the brine water enough. If you do it at  home, you are going to salt the water way way beyond what you think is necessary.  The water to salt ratio should stand at 6 to 1 by volume.  An egg will suspend in the water, as will the brisket (kind of like swimming in the Dead Sea).
