If you are like me, and constantly forget to burp jars, then you can make an automated burning system. I just made one using a bunch of 1/3 gallon jars. The guy in this video drills through the glass but it’s a lot easier just to drill through the cap and run an air hose from the inlet down to the bottom of the jar.

I just started using the half gallon mason jars like this i drilled the glass time will tell TreeFarmerCharlie i have gorilla glue in two and girl scout cookies in two and white widow in two 3 oz in each also i have 7 qt jars of girl scout cookies with a oz in each

Take it all out of jars and leave it for a few hours to dry some more, you want it to equalise in the jars at 62% or below, at 64% you can get mould, trust me I've ruined a crop leaving them in jars with to much moisture, you will get an ammonia smell and the buds will lose there colour and start going darker/brown.
I’m running at 61 this morning, I may have to do a switch a rough of the Gaige and I had to cut and jar a second batch yesterday,. I do however have a bundle of RH meters coming in on Monday. Do you think 61 is good or should I try to drop her a hair more mr green fingers?

Thanks for your post I had everything to do this minus a carbo tip, so I grabbed one of them yesterday, I’m gonna give er a whirl today if I have time. Question though? Even though this burps and puts fresh air in, so you move your week around so it’s not clumping together or am I just overthinking this? Lol

Hello op...just be sure to not stuff the nugs in...leave a little "wiggle room" in the jars...pretty cool idea TreeFarmerCharlie...thanks for sharing.

I’m gonna work on it in the next few days I will be sure to post my results good or bad, I also have a full mason jar of sweet leaves from trimming, would you suggest just putting these in a zip lock and to the freezer for either cbd or hash at a later date?

I always dry my trim in a paper bag..once good and dry, into a ziploc freezer bag and into freezer until needed. I make either qwiso or infused coconut oil with mine, so it works either way.

FF, do you limit how much trim you place into a single paper bag?

It won’t clump up. Just drop enough in each jar, to fill each one 75%, and don’t push down on it to fit more in. You want each jar to be filled, loosely, at 75% so they air can get to all of it.

You’re welcome. I can’t remember the guy who first thought to do this, but he has a large grow op, and he build a much larger setup that uses food grade 5 gallon buckets with screw on lids. He said he cures something like 2lbs in each bucket, and he gets a perfect cure using this method.
