Cut down on vinegar, store the canes in refrigerator, you'll be fine.
I make my own garlic pickles and pickled tomatoes. I do not use hot water, or pressure canner, no vinegar either, but I do have a spear refrigerator in the basement, where I store both of them. I still have tomatoes, pickles are gone unfortunately. Next year will make more. They are perfectly fine even now after almost 8 month.
You are what you eat.
