    Dry weight after a 6-week cure is about 25-30% of wet weight. At least it has been in my experience.

    Yep, from my experience that 11.4oz. will turn into about 3oz. You typically lose anywhere from 70-75%

    and if you check out that curing thread posted above, make sure out of everything you take from it you get yourself a hygrometer....if the humidity drops below a certain point you'll kill the plant and it wont cure properly. The whole point of curing is that you keep the plant alive, trying to redistribute its moisture to support itself as it dies slowly. If you hang it up to dry for too long, you will kill it before the cure even begins and you'll have harsh smoking not so tasty bud.
