I've been drying mine in my basement [63F, 35% rH or so] in a giant paper bag [like the one's you get at grocery stores], all broken up into golfball sized chunks, lined over the bottom of the paperbag. Has taken about 6 days til it got crispy on the outside and the digital hygrometer measured 64% [in-bag, closed], so put into jars overnight. Next morning they climbed back up to 78% or so, so opened the jars back up, dried the buds outside the jars some more [2-4 hours, give or take], stuck back in the jars, and it looks like I'll have to continually do this dance til things in the jars settle around 60% or so. I checked this morning and it's settling around 71% overnight, so it'll probably take several more days before it'll be low enough of an rH [the rH from allowing to sit overnight].

**Also forgot to add - while they were in the paperbag every 8-10 hours I would open the bag to burp a bit then gently shuffle the buds around.

This is from everything I've gathered from reading. Cheers @Ryker604 :vibe::thumbsup::pass::d5:

Just some tidbits from my personal experience so far. :D

Second time using the paper bag method. This time I used it cause I about ran out and this is the fastest way to some smoke with flavor and smell. Lol. Should be in a jar today. Been about 6 days in a room with RH of about 50-55%. Nice lemony Hazey smell. Hoping some time in the jars brings out the cheese.

With a little luck I will be havesting next weekend.

I just picked up some paper bags from McDonald's the other day, I hope they will do the trick, since we don't use paper bags here.
We are still using plastic bags in the shops.

I was thinking McDonald’s bags...but not sure if they are waxed?
Anybody else used McDonald’s bags for drying? Or has anybody got a link to a site where I can buy some?

You in the UK ? If so the best place is Tesco delivery drivers. When you get the vegetables in a delivered shop they are sent in perfect bags :)

First time paper bag curing. Is this too much in 1 bag or can i add more?


Think on it:
Does knowledge have intrinsic value or does it need to have a practical use to have value?
