just trying to get a better understanding of the brown baging step how does this affect the curing process.is this a critical part in the curing does the bag some how suck out more moisture from inside the buds.after buds are dry to the touch can you put them straight into the jars or would that coz mold? cuz i know after hanging and dry to the touch their is still moisture inside the buds but anyways

thx a bunch Risktaker

A lot of people skip the bag step, and go straight from hanging dry into containers. Search around the stickies and read up. There's a lot of great info. I pretty much do the same as BWD described also.

I hang the branches with the larger buds, but the smaller "popcorn" buds I put in a paper bag to slow their drying. I did this with a plant I just harvested and I noticed that by putting the smaller buds in the bag, I was able to slow their drying past the point of the hanging branches.

In drying, I believe the slower the better, but the trick is to not let mold set in. I made sure to open the bag multiple times a day and I took the buds out of the bag daily and rearranged them.

I don't bag...used to but found it an unnecessary step for me. I hang for a cpl days till the buds are dry to the touch or so, then trim the buds from the branch and begin the jar and burp routine. Jmo

Yup skip the bag and be just hangin 10-14 days or till the branch makes a deffinete "snap" when yual bend it then right into jars it goes. Toss everyday and burp jar like Hamster says for bout another 10-14 days then settle in fur the cure. Works every time fur me never had mold yet. Good luck what ever trail yual choose friend.

brown bagging seems to be more for people in more humid areas or people after a quick dry.

a rule of thumb ive read which worked for me is a day for every 10% of relative humidity in your drying area +1more, so 50%=6 days. jar it up with a hygrometer in and if over 75% hang back up. burp the jar untill it stays steady below 65%rh~ still burp less often till desired dryness (id go for 59ish. anything under 55~ wont cure anymore (i read)
