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.

To Burp Or Not To Burp

Burp them and take them out of the jar, inspect the inside of you biggest most compact buds, these usually mold first if you just let them sit in the jar too long with out opening and letting them breathe, also the buds get mildew if you just leave them in the jar for a long time with out opening the jar and getting fresh air in there.

I learned to take the big colas apart to dry and cure to prevent mold from growing in their moist interior, if I live them as is the biggest of the colas get mold in their interior.

This is why some people hang their plants to dry for two weeks before jarring, you don’t want to go all the way to harvest to loose your buds to mold, it is one of the easiest way to ruin your harvest, don’t fuck around and burp and inspect them buds often, if they get moist in the jars, pull them all out and let the buds dry up again.

Hey guys, this is my first cure. Thursday will be a full week of curing for my two plants that I dried for roughly 5-7 days (give or take). They are all in…
