Did you forget to list salt? It is not really a "brine" unless there is salt. Brine recipes usually call for anything from 1/4 to a full cup of salt depending on how much liquid is called for.

I brined my turkey last year with another recipe and it added much more flavor. I found this to be too mild.

This was GREAT! Turkey is not one of my favorite meals, but done this way. Wow! (even without the salt.)
