How long to burp and open jars ?

So I’ve hung my buds for 4 days and they maybe could of gone 1 more day drying but they are still pretty much ready for the cure, I’m away from home for 3 days and have decided to bring them with me.

I’ve done a fair bit of research on the burping and cure etc and I don’t have any hygrometer so no way off telling humidity.

I jarred them up in glass mason jars 3 quarters full and after a few hours they are barely sticking together but you can tell there’s still probably just a bit more moisture then it should have in there.

The buds still smell good with a bit of hay smell aswel as is expected, my question is how long should I open my jars for to burp them and how often if there’s still a bit of moister and when can I start leaving them closed longer. I don’t know how fast mold can develop and I think I may be leaving the jars open a bit too long because of fear of mold and I know it needs to be closed to cure properly. Any help will be much appreciated , cheers.

Honestly if you smell hay it’s already ruined. Hate to be so blunt. It would have been best to let the buds hang to the point of being overdry, then to take them down with moisture still in them.

You see when you get the hay smell it isn’t going away. No amount of burping will help, to try an minimize the hay smell I would leave them open for atleast 30 mins, every 3-4 hours.

If you overdry your buds you can add a Boveda or Likewise humidity pack and bring them back to life. Yes the smoke may be harsher due to it being drier but the smell will be perfect.

I understand the concept, and follow the rules.. But what are the best *burp* times?

I know a lot of ppl on here come to a crawling, slow and painful finish when it comes to harvesting, if at all. So please only experienced grower’s comments welcome Lol. not to be a dick, I just dont wanna hear what you “heard” works best..anyways:

off one plant I raked in over 234g of chronic. A lil over half P. I have (11) (12oz I think) Mason jars, filled w 20g ea..
and one other side jar. So the jars are filled I’d say abt 80% ea.

**SO I’d like the “perfect cure” Anyone have any suggestions on burping times? how long/how often..

And if u don’t know from experience, please go troll another thread HAHA jk

I do what this guy said:

]Burp the jars when you see moisture forming on the jar. If you can go buy a hygrometer that will help with drying your buds correctly. That way you can monitor the RH inside the jar, if it increases several % an hour, you want to burp them for an hour or two, this can be done with the lid off, or you can put it in a brown paper bag for a more even dry. A 3 week cure is good, month or more is optimal. Heres some more info to help with RH levels if you buy a hygrometer.

Cut the product, trim it per your preference, but don’t dry it until the stems snap. Take it down while the stems still have some flex, but the product feel dry on the outside. This is a perfect opportunity to drop the dry-feeling flowers onto a screen and collect prime-quality kief that would otherwise get lost in the jar.

Jar the product, along with a Caliber III hygrometer. One can be had on Ebay for

$20. Having tested a number of hygrometers – digital and analog – this model in particular produced consistent, accurate results. Then, watch the readings:

+70% RH – too wet, needs to sit outside the jar to dry for 12-24 hours, depending.

65-70% RH – the product is almost in the cure zone, if you will. It can be slowly brought to optimum RH by opening the lid for 2-4 hours.

60-65% RH – the stems snap, the product feels a bit sticky, and it is curing.

55-60% RH – at this point it can be stored for an extended period (3 months or more) without worrying about mold. The product will continue to cure.

Below 55% RH – the RH is too low for the curing process to take place. The product starts to feel brittle. Once you’ve hit this point, nothing will make it better. Adding moisture won’t restart the curing process; it will just make the product wet. If you measure a RH below 55% don’t panic. Read below:

Obviously, the product need time to sweat in the jar. As such, accurate readings won’t be seen for

24 hours, assuming the flowers are in the optimal cure zone. If you’re curing the product for long-term storage, give the flowers 4-5 days for an accurate reading. If the product is sill very wet, a +70% RH reading will show within hours. If you see the RH rising

1% per hour, keep a close eye on the product, as it’s likely too moist.
