ok will have a look. have a little while before feeding time lol
Exactly what I've been looking for , just to clarify, a jar with mesh over the opening works in place of a bag correct? And once you warm buds to room temp, seal and the rh is appropriate, less than 70%, I leave buds in the jar at room temp and burp until ~62%?So let me get this straight——
first - cut and wash the bud.
second -hang the bud for approx 3-4 hours to let dry the excess wash water
third -put them in paper bag or some sort of container inside the fridge. leave open a small hole for air exchange the first day
fourth - close the bags the next day.
fifth- every 3 days or so open the bag and rotate buds around or shake
sixth- around 10 -13 days start checking buds of different sizes for RH % inside a jar
buds <=70– go back in bags
buds =65-69 ready for jars continue to burp for a few days until RH gets to 65
buds at >=64% RH ready to be jarred and stored with weekly burping to finish curing
so essentially i know this has been said, but to summarize.
we are simply drying in the fridge, nothing special. in doing so we preserve terpenes and thc that would have been lost if hung in a higher temperature in a tent or other place.
since the fridge slows down the drying process, but at the same time prevents mold due to the low temps, it is easier for us to “catch” the bud at the correct RH% for curing WHILE PRESERVING THE TERPS lost in normal 60-70F tent hang dry.
we are able to then more effectively use a boveda pack because we can pinpoint a RH close enough in proximity to that boveda packs target humidity range of effectiveness.
that a good summary for anyone like myself new to it?
i have been thinking about this non stop for the last few days, i feel better prepared now to finish the dry.
if anything was wrong please point it out.
im also going to experment just hanging a few bigger colas with the stem attached, going to experiment a bit with it
yes. its not exact science, youll get it as it goes. my buds are all curing now out of the fridgerator in jars at 60-65 % rhExactly what I've been looking for , just to clarify, a jar with mesh over the opening works in place of a bag correct?
