They look great man yes drying slowly is a hard thing to achieve though you are talking about perfection.


Sweet Sue uses a dehydrator and friends who have bought and used them swear by them for sweating and drying afterwards.
I got one on ebay for $60 not the best brand and a little toy like but it works fine.


Get one they are the perfect answer to slow drying even for sweating they are unreal you can dial in the temps from 25c to 70c and even the cheap ones seem fairly accurate.


Just keep them vacuum sealed between drying and at room temps they wont go to far off the sweet spot. Until you can get them dried fully.

Malawi x Ethiopian cob oil

Not bad yield from 11g of a mix of two MxE cobs.
Smells so good it brings back memories of Africa. I used to love a greasy one skinner made with a dab of oil spread over a cig paper then sprinkled with small pieces of the same cob rolled up like a Swiss roll.
Two pulls and you were out of it and off for the whole night.
Thing was you needed 3 or 4 people to finish it. I could never roll them small enough for me alone.

Hi guys

I have just harvested a few outdoor Aussie winteries headbanger and gorilla bubble buds so both are on the wide leaf side, they are both lightly seeded and I want to try and save the seeds if possible, I think I remember a post about how hot I can sweat em before it compromises the seeds but just wanted to ask. So can I say sweat em on a low ish heat say 35 degrees c and still have viable seeds when aged? Thx guys.

Hi my friend I'm a fellow Aussie myself so we have that in common.
If it was me I would keep a few buds with seeds out of the cobs or try and remove as many as possible as insurance if you can.
Sure 12 to 24 hrs sweat will not harm the seeds and a short cure say one week would also not harm them.
The longer cures tend to hurt them I dont get good germ rates from 3 to 4 week cures.
But friends who have found seeds in cobs I gave them have germed them without issues. Just not guaranteed so insurance is a good precaution.

As far as I know no one has ever done it.
But i know fresh frozen buds defrosted and then cobbed work but not as good as fresh buds.
There is only one way to find out.

Has anyone tried skipping the 24 hours on 40C stage and just gone straight to vac sealed at room temps? I'd imagine that the bud in the cobs would need to be a little drier to begin with...but I wonder if the high would be the same?

Aloha Sertaiz!

Took the liberty of posting your cob pictures inline:







How did you sweat it? Definitely they're well sweated!

Have any bud pics to see original color?
