@Cold$moke after you build/buy you humidor, you are gonna need cannabis cigars for it.
Now thats a doob
ordered some of this to see if it will work as a non-toxic, non-vapor sealant
saw 3 of these glue sticks for a buck so i picked them up. dries clear.
I finally got around to working on
Since a wide mouth jar lid fits
Pint, quart, 1/2 gal & 1 gal wide mouth jars its a pretty flexible solution.
Pushes down into a wide mouth jar lid.
Im going to use a hot glue gun to seal
And hold it in place
I ordered 6 gauges and a couple were off by 1 or 2.
I'm ok with that and I marked them accordingly.
The +2 marking reminds me to add
2 to the actual reading.
I make no promises that this will work well for you but if you are interested the gauges were 6.79ea at amazon
Just search lockdown hygrometer.
The image they use looks slightly different than what arrives.
btw, those jar lids will fit the pint wide mouth jars also
Cool, I wasn't sure
Ill edit To reflect that
Just reminded me I have a hot glue gun. Should work well
How do check drift of meter.?
I left the whole lot in a room sitting right next to my digital.
Gave it a few hours then checked them
Was wondering if analog style meters are just as accurate as digital ...
Bought the small digital sand there is some variables ( 1- 2 % ) typical which really isn't that bad if in cure zone anyways.
Being 100 percent honest, I just like the looks of analog. Lol
But I too expect variance in everything.
Since I have several I will expect to see them all in a similar range and if 1 is not I will be alerted that there is a possible problem.
I just squeeze the buds between my fingers to tell where they're at
These are actually holding pretty accurately. 1 is a bit off.
Thats too sweet char
The dials give it an industrial look
But i love the convenience of analog too
very nice @charface
Let us know how your cure came out with the analog hydrometer. Thanx good collaboration guys and gals.
So far were cooking right along.
I have at this point stuck a boveda in the jars for insurance. A week or two after dry.
When you open the jar it smells like crazy so I don't think the boveda is tampering with aroma.
One of these gauges broke out of 6 so far.
The boveda only works if the weed is super close to a proper range.
You cant shove a small one in 3 oz of dry weed and expect it to overpower that. They are different sizes for a reason.
What I have done is taken the lid from a water bottle and folded a sheet of toilet paper until it fits. Added a few drops of water to that and dropped it in the jar along with boveda
My takeaway is that boveda works if you use the correct size and if the humidity as nearly in range when you put it in.
Imo boveda does a better job of removing moisture than it does replacing it.
Hence my water bottle lid
All in all being able to just glance at the jars and see they are in range without
Opening and fishing for the device is well worth it to me.
mine are holding up pretty well also. will try to get a picture later
