    Any difference in the time it takes to dry in a brown bag rather than hanging? Do you still use the 10% rh rule? Is any way better.. Never used the brown bag method before just curious :bong:

    I use a small cardboard box to dry, its almost like the paper bag method. Only diff i've read from peeps experiences is that using a paper bag while drying then straight to jars will "speed up" the cure. So lets say after drying in the bags for 1 week, the buds will have a great smell and taste which makes it seem like they've been curing in the jars for a couple of weeks. With my upcoming harvest im switching to the paper bags just cuz i hate waiting for a cure. :peace:

    That's what I'm trying to dry my first indoor grow. I've used the hanging method (as do many here at AFN!) in the past but, it does take up a lot of room (more so, if you have a bumper harvest!) :check:

    As to timing, I'm keeping with the day for each 10% plus a day. My tent where I am drying is between 18.5 and 22.0c/ rh 50%

    Got mine from Lakeland (Kitchen Shop) here in the UK, 48 for £3.59

    I think TaNg is the brown paper bag man to ask? :D:D:D

    :peace:

    Mike.

    Usually takes me 5 days to dry in paper bags. I start checking on day 3. Just remember, break down the buds (no monster colas).

    Ive always hung mine up to dry with nothing ever lower than 45% RH. works well for a nice 5-7 day slow dry if you control your airflow.But Ive heard that the brown bag method works alright but never used it.It dries it faster by a few days.They said it'll often have a bit more of a greener tatse since its not gassing off the chloryphill,and I'd think that a killer flush might help with that too.But just thinking out loud really.Lemme know how it goes.I'd like to try it this next harvest even with a little bit.cool stuff. :wiz: :thumbs:

    Edit:WOW! 5 days in a bag?!that rocks!!See I didnt know you could dry it for that long in a brown bag.Awesome!Thanks!

    I've found that it's just the opposite.... I get a greener taste when I hang dry. For me, the bags hold onto the fragrance of the herb better. :smoke:

    So you just stick say 1/2 ounce or 1/4 ounce in a small brown paper bag n fold it over a few times n stick in a dark cooler corner with some or little airflow?how do you do your RH? or do you?that rocks,Ive not heard this before.Im really super curious now. :booya:

    I use the big grocery bags. I line the bottom of the bag with buds, 1 layer and not too crowded. I then fold the bag shut and put it in a cardboard box with my hygrometer. I then put it in a tent with my fan/filter on about half speed for odor control and fresh air circulation. The RO stays around 50-55% in the boxes, if it's over that then most likely you have to much in the bags/boxes.

    Tang showed me this method last year and I have tweaked it to my setup and I love it. :smokebuds:

    Just line the bottom of a bag with nugs no bigger than a golf ball, 40%RH and your dry in 5 days and they defo lock the favour and smell in, I was using the hanging method before and I was getting a hay smell before cure on a lot of my strains all good now with paper bags. I've hung the bags had them in a cardboard box and a cupboard and all gave the same great result.
