Hey all, couple weeks away from harvest and I 
wanted to know if anyone in this forum has tried water curing.

temps are going to be an issue. I have a 3x3 in my bedroom which is in a medium sized room.  
however the building faces north  and have big windows and I’m on the top floor so the apartment turns into an oven during summer. Even with a 14,000 BTU A/C just for the room, on a sunny day I can’t get the temp bellow 80F. I can’t go with a bigger A/C because it will trip the breaker (pre-war building). 
 
However I’ve looked around and came across information  on water curing. Literally dropping buds in jars for a couple days. I then have the ability to put these jars in a wine fridge that would allow me to keep a specific temp.. I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with this. And how the smoke compared to normal dry and cure techniques. 
I’m open to any suggestions. 
please help me save the terps!!!

hey awesome grow man!! 
So you also found buds smoother after water curing? 
What temperature did you keep the water at? 
And how was the drying process after wards...would it be the same as a standard dry after harvest? Or does the fact the buds are water logged change the process?

Yes, we found a smoother vape, should have smoked some but gave that up long time ago so we'd prob cough our lungs out if we did it, lol. Water temp was just room temp so ~20C. After drip dry buds were dried as normal in my cardboard drying box, room temp and 50 humidity. If I were you I'd take a couple buds and try it first before committing whole crop... less than 2 weeks and you're ready to puff
