I am considering buying some of the Hide Tanning Formula offered through this site, but I'm unfamiliar with it.

With the kit I used (Luttan F), after fleshing, I had to pickle, neutralize, degrease, and tan.

What steps are involved (or maybe I should say not involved) with the use of the Hide Tanning Formula?

Thanks.

With Hide Tanning Formula, basically all you do is salt the hide then wash out the salt and apply the Formula. But, be advised this does not give you a soft, garment style tan. This is more for making a "wall hanger" pelt.

With Hide Tanning Formula. or with DixieTan you get a hide, that with a little breaking over a dull ax blade, will make good hats. The hide is not soft by any means, but neither is it stiff enough to be uncomfortable. The siffness that remains in the hide prevents the hat from collapsing. For this particular use, I like both of these products.
Adios,
