    I'm using green bags, I must say it's a big step up from the brown bag.
    You should give them a try.

    Brown paper bags work well also. I use them for all the small nugs you didn't hang and even to help them tighten up real nice. I will fill a bag about 3-5 inches depending on how heavy the nugs are and leave the bags open and once to 2x a day just fluff them and shake them around and up. I keep the room temp around 70-75 and a fan going also. I find that this is a great method as stated above for whats left after the first 2 cuts.

    After nugs are nice and dry in the brown paper bags I then place in to the oven cooking turkey bags and let cure opening them once a day for half hr to breath. I do this for 7 days and then done.

    Keep in mind then when working with 30-40 lbs it is impossible to use 1-gal pickle or mason jars. You still get the same curing as one, Turkey bags don't let in or out any smell so your buds won't be stinking up the room and also not absorbing any smell from your room. Just remember to twist them REAL tight and use a rubber band.

    Been working for me 4 yr running now.

    Good luck

    After 2 weeks of paper bag and opening them once a day, I' ll put the bags into a cooler and that's where i'll store them.

    I have used this same method with large Outdoor crops it works great and turkey bags seal the smell good. I like to give them air for 2 weeks but whatever you prefer. Great for moving large quantity's.
