Sounds like you have a good system. They are going to be fantastic!Thank you, stoneotter. I assume you know this but just to be clear I do put the lids on my Tupperware so drying out too much isn’t really a problem in the short term.
This is only the second time I have used the fridge method but once my buds are around 70% I take them out of the bags in the fridge and then put them in the Tupperware with a hygrometer at room temp. I air them out every day till I get them down to about 65% then I start to let them go every other day and then every few day until I get to 60% then I pack them so I get 4 to 5 ounces in a big mason jar and put them in the freezer for long term storage.
This is only my second fridge batch so I am still working out my method but I have found if I don’t air my bud out pretty frequently that it gets kind of a dusty smell like something that has been stored in a basement too long but if I air them out too often they dry out faster than I want them to so it is a balancing act.
I have read that bud continues to cure and become smoother to smoke for up to six months but I find airing out my bud to avoid it getting musty smelling I get to 60% in two to three months. Some people apparently don’t air out their bud for up to weeks but I have been afraid to let mine go that long. So I am still kind of working things out but with a 2 to 3 month cure it seems to work out pretty good because when I give it away free I haven’t had any complaints, lol. I don’t smoke it but just make infused olive oil.
