Rookie of all rookies here...So I've eased some dried flowers into Mason jars and some into Grove bags to see if I have a preference for one or the other. My buds are loose and airy, so they dried pretty quickly hanging in the shed.

Dutifully, I burped everything this afternoon (I guess you don't technically need to burp Grove bags), and I asked myself, what am I trying to do? Let moist humid air out? Let moist humid air in? And is a burp a 5-second open-and-close or would I want to leave the jars open for a spell? Thoughts from the MP Mind?

Good question. I burp as needed. If bud are spongy burp .... If they don't get crispy after burping leave the lids open longer. It is a simple spongy/crispy process. When the buds quit getting spongy the curing process really starts. Continue burping and let the build up gasses release to a point where you can leave the lids closed.

You know I couldn't resist a little puff from the harvest, and I am very pleased with the results. I'm sure something will still go wrong. Jar weevils or pink powdery mildew, what have you, but for now we're happy!🤞

Pute when you are burping do you keep a small humidity meter in the jars? I use the small cheap ones , I just bought another dozen like 14 dollars. I dry to about 62 and Boveda bag em up.

No, I do it by crispy/spongy. I could do it in the dark. I know what my buds feel like....no need for gadgets.

What the farg is a jar weevil? Must be from some foreign country. Don't have them in these parts.....
