62-63% humidity

I have a few small humidors that I seasoned for a week and I am using 65% humidipaks until I get some beads. I put the proper number of packs in each of them and they seem to be fluctuating between 62-64% but most often 62-63.

More people seem to prefer 65% humidity, as you generally get a better burn. That's why I went with 65% instead of 69%.

What are your opinions about this humidity level (62-63)? I am figuring the sticks will taste just fine I just wanted to hear what people think...

Here in dry Colorado I've had trouble getting my humi's above the mid 60's for the last month... I'd say they have been hovering between 60-64% for the most part & everything has smoked really nicely!

The humidity sounds just fine... only way to know for certain if it fits your preference is to store a few sticks in there and smoke them. In any case, the cigars won't be damaged at those levels. :2

65% here but I dry box for a couple of days prior to smoking to get them down to around 62%RH prior to smoking.

I have 65% Beads in my cooler and desktop. The cooler holds 65 just fine, but the desktop is always around 60-62. I find that at the lower humidity the cigars smoke great.
