How long and often do you burp a jar after curing begins?

    A cure was started on the 4th of this month. Moisture content was higher and stems didn't snap completely when put into the jar. So far, jars were burped for 10 - 60 minutes (depending on if I forgot to close the jar) and buds were re-stacked once because of a grassy smell. Around 9 days later, the jar is still being burped for 10 - 60 minutes (typically 15 minutes) and the smell is starting to get better. How much longer should this process of daily burping continue? Re-stacking will not occur again because it looks like it's not needed and disturbs the bud too much. The cure is in a cool, dark place.

    Thanks RIUkiss-ass

    I usually cure like this-7 day of regular fan drying, then after that i use jar, and open the lid every day for 6 hours, and that i do for about 4 weeks.

    I fan dry till everything seems brittle dry at 1st glance, then into metal tins like the ones xmas cookies come in (larger opening so easier to restack).first week gets opened for 1-2 hours a day then opened for less time each day till about a month in when they get opened only every few days.even on tins that are several months old,I open them every week or 2 for a minute.
    you will know when it is ready by the smell

    curing allows full complete uniform drying throughout the flower and it also allows for the nice slow release of chlorophyll and natural sugars.

    i have a grower friend that drys and cures his buds in less that 36 hours.

    he lays them on a plastic shelf system and has the worlds largest dehumidfier next to the shelf.

    he loves it, says that the sooner you smoke the buds after cutting them the better they are. what an ass. his grass always smells like hay, and it falls apart when you touch it. and to top it off it burns like shit!

    he has been growing for years and swears by this. i personally like to smack him everytime i hear him explain it.

    Curing takes time, The longer the cure the smoother and better tasting the smoke. You can get pretty decent results after 10 days drying and 10 days curing, anything more is just connoisseur weed.
