Mick, that's so great to hear
and the kind of experience we all seek! Did you smoke or ate it?
After 30 days of curing, I unsealed them today to find them still pretty moist. All humidity traveled from maize husk to the cobbed buds.
It was obvious some sort of wax from the maize husk sealed the cob, as husks where perfectly adhered to the cobs. Looked like honey and vanished quickly.
Smell was brined vegetables at the beggining, slowly subduing to a sweet Mangoish fermented smell.
All pics are color balanced with a grey card. Greenish tone slowly seem to dissapear or turn orangeish with drying.
Let's recap, until now:
- Sweat phase:
3 cycles of heating to 60C then leaving residual heat 4 hour each.
8 days at daytemp (30C max)
Leave them drying until husk dry to the touch, then revac and leave
30 days at daytemp (30C max).
Unseal, let dry. (Current phase, been like 3 hours and they're pretty damp still, drying slowly at room temp, 20C)
