    Beads: Humidity drop

    The humidor is pretty small, maybe a 50-75 count I would say. I lay the tube on top of the cigars and it pretty much runs much more than half the length of the humidor. If I run it the other way, it covers the entire width of the humidor. It isn't near any heat source, and the temp in the...

    Beads: Humidity drop

    I just checked it after being out at the office for a couple hours and it is at 61%. I thought of the battery issue, which is why I put the second hygrometer in there, both have been salt tested and the readings on them are consistant. The only possibility I can think of is I re-arranged the...

    Beads: Humidity drop

    Does anyone know how long it should take after opening a humidor for a few seconds (to check humidity or remove a cigar) for the beads to take it back to the correct humidity?

    Beads: Humidity drop

    I've been using a 4 oz. tube of 65% beads in my desktop humidor for a week or so now. The humidor has an excellent seal and if anything I've had problems with the humidity being too high in there before, despite living in a dry climate. The humidity has been dead on, until yesterday, when it...

    Ring Gauge

    Sorry if this question seems dumb, I'm a relative newbie though and I noticed something today. Most of the cigars I have been smoking have been larger RG, I'd say 52 plus. Today, I smoked a Sanch Panza Double Maduro that was a 6.5" 48 RG though and I noticed 3 things. 1. It was a lot...

    Storing/Aging Boxes

    As a follow-up question, that about the ziplock bags CBid puts the 5'ers in? Is it ok to store in those? Should I take the cigars out of them? Leave them in but the bags unzipped?

    Storing/Aging Boxes

    Well, it's just as I feared.... I opened the box, took a peek inside, and that box of 10 immediately became a box of 9 :)

    Storing/Aging Boxes

    Well, I got my first box the other day (CAO Black Man O' War) off Cbid, and have it my coolerador. I got to wondering, is it best to unwrap the box before leaving it in the cooler long term, or does it not matter?

    Bead recharging question

    I'm using the tube sold at Heartfelt. I'll have to try a bag and see if that works better. I like the tube though becasue it fits in with the cigars so nicely.

    Bead recharging question

    I did that to initiall charge them, and it caused a lot fo them to crack, which is now filling my humidor with bead chips. I was just looking for a way to do it that wouldnt create this problem:)

    Bead recharging question

    When the beads start to turn too white and you want to recharge them, is putting a shotglass of water in the humidor overnight an effective and acceptable way to do it? Will the beads absorb the excess humidity as fast as the water will put it out, or will the humidity rise too much in the...

    Too wet?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but I am trying to smoke and learn :) Got a 5er of Hoyo Dark Sumtra Media Noches from C-Bid on Monday. Thought I'd try one tonight. Opening it up, I noticed that it felt very firm and heavy. Smoking it, I feel like I might rupture a lung trying to suck...
