I think you'll get good results with this.
For what it's worth I don't use as much vinegar in my brine. I do 2 parts water to 1 part vinegar. I also use almost three times as much salt as in your recipe. But for me it can never be salty enough. You might want to throw in a half tablespoon of mustard seed as well in each jar before packing.

I'm not an expert but isn't the 1:1 ratio for vinegar and water pretty standard? I recall something about staying tight to that for health reasons(bacteria?), but its been quite some time and I don't pickle much.
