Wow I read this entire post. Great information. I can’t wait to try this out. Have a few months till next harvest. On Day 3 of flowering. I plan on doing two comparisons. One is to hang out to dry for a few days till outside of bud crisp and then freeze in brown paper bags: The other method I’ve been reading up on is being dried in the fridge in brown paper bag where it takes a lot longer to dry since the bud is added fresh from day one and requires you moving around the buds daily. Can’t wait to try results from both. I’ve only dried and cured buds the normal route.
What's a good humidity pack to put in your jars?? I put everything in quart jars after dry. I've been noticing there's different numbers or %?? What's a good number to start with?? I'd like to buy some. At times I have 7-8 cases loaded with killer!!! But there all almost empty but I just finished a good indoor grow.!!!!!

donburi, I don’t think a mini fridge/freezer would work. From various experiences with these, the freezer section slowly becomes a block of ice, trapping it’s contents inside an icy tomb. They need to be thawed out every few months because the ice buildup.
The reason a self defrosting freezer is recommended is because that’s the action that freeze dries the buds. The freezer continuously removes moisture from the air instead of letting it condense and slowly build up inside.
Thank you for this idea! Without following recent historical developments closely in live rosin and freezing for storage it makes sense that fresh berries or herbs are tastier than dried. I tried this placing some fresh cut flowers in the freezer in a paper bag. Bugs and mold spores are slowed or stopped this way and the flowers can be cut fresh and vaporized or divided into smaller pieces to air dry. We do this with food we eat. If your/my/our harvest reasonably fits in a freezer it saves more of the good stuff. Each step of the grow has something like a cumulative risk and part of the resin loss to pathogens eating the plants may happen during the drying period preventable with frozen storage.
Kind of tangential once you're harvesting from the garden and freezing food at home it raises all sorts of questions how fruits vegetables grains spices herbs and so forth elsewhere are handled.
