Hi guys new here!

5 days ago I started a brine for the first time. It was a recipe on YouTube :

PICKLING SPICE
5
dried chiles de árbol
1
1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled, coarsely chopped
1
3-inch cinnamon stick
10
cardamom pods
8
dried bay leaves
3
tablespoons whole peppercorns
2
tablespoons coriander seeds
2
tablespoons mustard seeds
1
tablespoon allspice berries
1
tablespoon juniper berries
1
teaspoon whole cloves
BRINE AND BRISKET
1
14.9-ounce can Guinness draught
½
cup (packed) light brown sugar
5
teaspoons pink curing salt

cups kosher salt, plus more
1
5–6 pound untrimmed flat-cut beef brisket

———————————————————

I followed the recipe. Had to add some more water (1/4-1/2 liter)to cover the meat as the container was not the right size

5 days later I checked and cut the meat and doesn’t look like it was brined at all :(
Any help would be appreciated to know what to do. Thanks!
