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