Talking How to cure a large harvest

Hey everyone long time no see. Okay the question is how would you dry and cure a very large harvest? 1000 plus plants? I thought about 55 gal metal drums.

They have mesh drying racks that are pretty huge, maybe if you got a few of those. The mesh ones have like 6 layers. take a look here: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_s...=1WHQH0ALDPII9

Then turkey bags to store.

Thanks Rose but I'm not sure even the biggest one would handle this much. Last years was hung and dried like tobacco. The main problem is storage for curing. I'm talking like 6 55 Gal drums full. Will metal drums cause any damage?

I wouldn't use it but I am a ridiculous purist. Hanging like tobacco is good. What a problem to have, huh? I am thinking here. Others will be by. Shrink wrap lbs?

Drying is so very important, low and slow. 65 degrees with major air movement. I use a storage container insulated with 2inch thick marine grade Rmax. It's a must. Air conditioners throughout and dehumidifier(just in the beginning). 6 days is ideal. To really utilize the space I like using the netting it makes it very easy to move each row back-and-forth, also allows good air movement. As with everything you must be attentive every few hours to come out with a fantastic outcome. Good luck.

Aggie007, What type of storage container? Is it a purchased one or something you built. I'm sure it's not a rental storage unit, lol. Thanks for the tips.

I've gone thru a few shipping containers. Depends on your budget but it's worth to by a "one trip" high cube container that basically band new. Shop around and you can find a deal. You must use insulation to achieve long controlled curing. I use the 40 feet long ones. Gives good room to move in.
