I check this thread everyday I love the methods people are playing with and the effects they're describing.
Z99 is a Zoid Fuel x C99. Super strong. I've only grown the one and the cobs started out really clear but then went stony. I'm hoping a good age will bring out the sativa effects. It's a hit with mates, as I started with 5 cobs and am down to 2, which I'm going to hide.

So he rolls a joint and after 3 or 4 puffs he's gone, staring out into who knows what, with the joint still between his fingers, and he stayed like that for a long time
hahahah... then is he who went overripe! or bananas!

Sweet Sue's post

I hope Sweet Sue doesn't mind but this is gold. Red diesel on display.






My method.

Prep stage:
Harvest your buds and hang dry for 1-2 days. If you were to put them in a jar with a hygrometer they’d be ready when it reads about 75% - 82%.

Roll 1 to 1-1/2 ounces into a log and wrap it in a pre-moistened, and washed corn husk.

Sweat Stage:
Vacuum seal the wrapped log in a bag and “ferment” at 104° for 24 hours or so, I use a food dehydrator others use seed starter mats and someone even puts theirs in a heated a hot tub.

After 24 hours, or until you feel they are ready, open the vacuum sealed bags and husk and dry the cob for an hour or two, until it feels dry on the outside but still moist and flexible on the inside.

Ferment stage:
Vacuum seal again and let sit at 80° for one week. The first couple weeks I rewrap it in the corn husk but after that I just put them right in the vacuum bags with no husk.

After a week at 80° open it and let dry to the touch again (an hour or two).

Reseal and leave at 80° for another week then open, dry, and reseal again. Repeat for a total of four weeks or until you feel they are ready.

After four weeks or so of opening, drying, and resealing leave them out to dry for 1-2 days. If you were to put them in a jar with a hygrometer they’ll be ready when it stabilizes at about 62%.

Cure stage:
Put the unwrapped cobs in a jar with an optional 62% Boveda pack and burp the jar semi regularly for about three months just as you would cure regular buds.

Blast off and enjoy.







I posted this so you could pick up the correction @Mr. Magoo and replace the one you posted.

The only correction I made was to the humidity levels going into the cob. I try to get closer to that 82%. I find I like those cobs best.

@DrDoob ....... mighty impressed by your grasp of the process. I let them tell me when they’re done. Just this morning I took the Devil’s Carnival cob out to dry after two months curing and decided to do the same with the Red Diesel that’s a month out of fermenting. It was the smell that made me choose today.

That cob has me f-l-y-I-n-g at the senior center. Lol! I had a 0.7 gr piece. WooHoo!

I think this could be the key for golden cob cures. I didn't dry mine that much, hence the dark brown-green cure.

This cure should preserve the most terpene and looks wise... was looking exactly for this!

SweetSue's Golden Malawi Cob Recipe!

Simple, and detailed, double golden!

I guess using dehydrator to control drying will have the added advantage of setting an humidity point?

Picture mission failed. That shit smoked so smooth. The weed it came from wasn't the best, kind of a giggly high. The cob seems to have made it "more so" like now it's really giggly high.

Malawi x Ethiopian 6 months aged and Golden Tiger 6 months aged.

For when you absolutely positively have to be some one else, somewhere else for the day.
I bring you Malawi x Ethiopian and Golden Tiger now aged for 6 months.
Some friends who smoke will get to sample these in a couple of weeks time at my remote fishing camp. I love seeing them get high they love it so much.
This MxE is mind blowingly strong fermented and aged, great for a party you are so out of it having a super positive tripping high its unreal.
I am so confident and full of energy I feel like a New Orleans pimp or a Zulu warrior who's loin cloth is struggling to keep a lid on my desire for life. Talk about feeling confident ha ha.
Check out the pics I only had 0.25g that piece on the scales is 0.33g
That is a typo P X E should be M x E ha ha..... I was going up at the time.
