I made a brine for a turkey this morning and was planning on cooling it for a few hours before putting the turkey in it (the recipe I'm using says it should be cold). But it's still really warm now, even though it's been in the fridge for a while. Does it have to be cold, or can I submerge the turkey in the brine while its warm and then refrigerate it?
