Interesting that you had burn and bitterness issues at 65%.Using 65% but have had a LOT of burn/bitter issues, especially with maduros. So...I switched one tup to 62%. Still waiting for the RH to catch up but am willing to bet it helps things out.
Well, usually my tups run around 3% higher than the Bovedas, and it's super humid around here. So really, I'm taking them out of the tup around 68%...and even dry boxing for a day doesn't always do the trick.Interesting that you had burn and bitterness issues at 65%.
I wonder why, when I have neither...

Dang. I did NOT know that. I had been pulling out the weekend sticks on like Thursday, giving them 2 days or so. Guess I'll start them on like Saturday for next Saturday.You need to dry box for about a week I think the rule of thumb is at best 1% per day and that's probably without cellos. We have 85% outside right now and inside with the dehumidifier running I'm at 67%.
Do you use 62 Bovedas or something else in the travel humidor to lower the RH?I went to a 40 count traveldor as my dry box. That way I'm not filling it so often and I can pick from a selection of cigars. A week is probably good, I had a buddy tell me that when smoking in high humidity the cigar absorbs all that moisture and the burn is affected. I thought he was crazy but I swear by it now.
Seems like a large percentage of smokers dry box their Cigars for a while.On a related note, ive begun dryboxing next weekends sticks today.
Interesting how many people keep there cc's at very low rh, and dry box for fairly long periods too.CCs @ 58%
NCs @ 65%
The CCs at 58% was a game changer for me. Burn issues, plugged sticks, etc are a thing of the past!

Makes perfect sense.You live in Wyoming, I'm willing to bet that when you open your humis your Rh drops considerably with the low humidity in your environment. Your 65% Bovedas are working to raise the humidity. On the Gulf Coast when we open the humidors we are introducing wet air and our Bovedas need to bring the Rh down. So I use 62% I also like a dryer cigar when I smoke because they pickup dampness from our tropical climate.
All that counts is that you like the burn and flavor of your smoke. Nothing else really matters.
