    This is pretty much exactly how I do it. A lot of is based on feels of the buds for me

    I also like to use the smaller wide mouth mason jars. A) If mold does happen, if I get distracted by life and don't open jars it's minimal amounts effected B) I got big fucking hands lol. Those small mouth fuckers are no bueno when my hands are always covered in cuts.

    I also like to flip my jars so the buds on the bottom have air on top every day.

    Ive noticed that even when my jars get into the 62-65% range i still have to either open the jars for a while every day or take the buds out altogether for a little while- otherwise i get that kinda chorophyll smell which will go into the buds over time

    that rh is a little low, if you can get the rh to 65%, it slows it down just a little, then you can put it in the jars and burp it down the last couple of points to 63%

    Glad to see I'm not the only one using the old school paper bag method.. What are we gonna use when they do away with them? I've got a rack and jars but I prefer the bags...

    i started using the paper bag method after 25 years of not growing,, i wanted to do everything as EASY as possible , i gravitate to easy,, and the paper bag method is just that,, i have recieved a perfect cure the past 2 years thru 5 crop cycles using it,, and some of my stuff is now approaching 2 years in the jars, and the MJ is perfect,, smokes great,, seems to be better with age,, why would i ever change?,, i dont have to purchase humidity sacks,, its so simple,, a few jar burps after the bags,, but nothing major,, it fits with my working full time too,, the bags take care of my buds if i cant get to them,, i like that,, i could go on and on about Easy,,

    The bags are more forgiving... They absorb the moisture then wick it away. Slowly.. The weed is always breathing so it won't mold as easily.. It's the way I learned back in the 70s

    Whats the rh n temp in your drying tent like?
    Mine will be around 21degrees and 60%rh. I have 500cfm exhaust and cpl oscilating fans.
    Just wondering if I should run exhaust 24/7 or every 5hrs.
    I do have a mini dehumidifier I can have come on when the exhaust is off to keep the rh in check

    Just did a great hang dry on my SinMintCookies. Hung for 9 days @ 60-65% in 68-72°. Smell is great going into the jars. Gonna burp less that I normally do. Maybe once a day for a week then once every 3-4 days after that.

    This exactly. Most Growers are obsessed with getting their stuff in a curing jar at 60% humidity, etc etc, "the perfect cure". It's to a point where people will suggest to make extracts because "it was ruined by drying too much".

    You could leave your stuff out to dry for months and it will come out just fine. Hell yeah it will dry out too much. Crumbly dry weed is THE BEST.

    it still comes out of the jars pretty darn nice,, but when left out in a baggie in the summer here,, it can turn crumbly fast,, but that stuff makes great joints, for around the campfire
