Tang, I unwrapped the cob to let it dry, but then just stuck it in vac bag without wrapping it in the brown paper. I thought maybe this would help me see the results without opening the seal. i stick it in a dark spot. This should work, correct?
Thanks for the excellent thread
hey there CannaRed. i've done the same thing after the cobb had expired what i thought was enough moisture, but the color change was not what i wanted. i still find myself opening these paperless cobbs for the smells though. ummm! i've also wondered if it's alright. when i don't need to wrap the cobb tight because it doesn't appear to be shrinking anymore is when i go paperless back into the vac bag.
i noticed Tangwena's chopper read cobbs were still moist in a clear wrapper and not a corn husk.
tried using corn husks on my first cobb, but it was too much of a pain in the ass for me. figured out using brown paper as a wrapper was easier for my fingers to work with and has a time saving benefit too. if the cobb needs to expire more moisture i grab a new drier piece of brown paper and rewrap the cobb right away. then back in the heat she goes.
also been letting the brown paper wrappers dry out and reusing them. seems the goodies from the cobbs soak into the brown paper wrappers and "season" them --if that's possible? the more i reuse a wrapper the better it smells, but eventually they do loose some of their strength and will tear easier when wrapping cobbs tightly.
