Gent, just chopped one out of 4 GG auto (other 3 just going milky, and this one was always miles ahead) had to find an alternative drying  room i.e the garage. 

RH is good and stable for the minute at 45%, just having trouble with the temp, currently 27 (got a small fan in the general direction, and not to close)

My question is (apart from another setup to dry in) can I lightly mist them to control the drying process, as I don't obviously want them drying to quick....

 

Thanks guys

I’ve not done this but it sounds like it could cause your buds to mould. That being said, I don’t have an alternative either 🤷🏻‍♂️

No mate, like monkey said itll cause mould. Try to reduce the temps, lower extraction, and keep a slow breeze moving around the room. Dont blow air directly at the buds. Thatll slow it down, but still, its a bitch to dry weed in summer time

You could try brown paper bags in the fridge matthew, a fridge by its nature dries stuff out in a nice cool environment, brown paper will help keep the moisture in for a longer period

@matthew-elton, I wonder if in a garage, could you increase the humidity in there to maybe 50-55% to help slow them?  Or could you put them in a big box and burp the box or open it slightly? Just stone thinkin.

@matthew-elton how did it work out? i deal with epic dry in winter, I got a $13 ikea zip-up basement cloths rack and that worked a treat. When it needed higher hum i could put a trash bag over. a tiny USB fan helps.

Thankfully the temps eventually came down, and the RH stayed at acceptable levels. I hung them by major branches aswell, so that helped them keep hold of the moisture for a bit longer (I think / hope)

Think I'm gunna have to squeeze another small tent for drying In some where, for when we get our 2 weeks of summer in this country, or just not grow through the "summer"....🤔

I'm currently in the process of making a coolbox AC system, some good ideas out there, cheap as chips to make / run aswell......😁

As for the end resulting taste test, we'll they've been in cure for 3 weeks now, not sure how much longer I can hold out.....🤔
