Please do. I'd be happy to help if you have questions.

I probably wasn't clear enough when I mentioned scaling the methodology for larger harvests. This what I wrote in another thread:

FWIW, I've used 2 hygrometers to cure +5lbs in 1gal jars.
Unfortunately, I write like an EE and don't always venture above and beyond the basic architecture of the concept. If anyone has specific questions, or would like to discuss this on a more granular level, please feel free to post specifics.

One thing to keep in mind with products geared for tobacco. Tabacco's prime RH is ~70%, which is a bit higher than what we're looking for.

I'm going to look into the electronic controls. Thanks for the tip.

Simon, thank you for the awesome info, I hope this gets stickied. My question is and I've always been confused about this, is what is the difference between jar curing and jar storage? Is 55-60% the sweet spot you would always like your flowers to be at?

Also a very reputable collective recommends storing with these:

https://innovagolf.com/boveda.html

The lowest packet they have available is 65%. Would you cure, monitor, and burp until RH is 55-60% then put a boveda packet in for indefinite storage?

Thanks

I'm not sure, to be honest. I can only assume that differentiating between the two points to an alternate curing method.

Quote:

It's a difficult question to answer without examining the individual situation. As you know, the curing process hinges on a very slow extraction of moisture from the stems. As that moisture is released, the product hydrates however minutely over time. Hence, the need to correlate the product's RH with the intended storage period. One also needs to account for the approximate moisture content in the stems. For example, product dried more quickly will maintain higher moisture level in its stems relative to its flower mass. All this has to be taken into account when shooting for an optimum RH.

For smoking ~60% or a hair more is great. In terms on bag appeal, ~65% will deliver a sticky product. Much depends on one's expectations. The flowers will be curing, regardless.

Assuming the flowers' RH has stabilized - the product was brought down to its intended RH, monitored, jar kept closed for at least a week and checked again - the packet would simply add moisture to the flower mass. You see, the tobacco in the cigars is already cured and enthusiasts are simply looking to maintain the cigars in their optimum state. We, OTOH, are looking to cure the product, itself, and keep it curing, rather than maintaining a static state of cure for a long period of time. Cigars, and Canna, that are too dry can be hydrated with such a packet, but it will have no bearing on the curing process. I hope that made sense.
