Will the odor start to diminish once they start to dry, or will they smell up the place until i get it in jars?
Yes it will…stink up the place I mean
Definitely gets worse until you jar it and even when you open the jars to burp it gets stronger as time goes by
This is why i get them into jars within 3 days and slow the process from there. My normal charcoal filter on the system can handle the air exchange from the jars better. Also easier to do. As a drying procedure overall. Still takes 8-10 days total to get down to 62%. Just be into jar conditions within 3-4. (Which is 70% or less)
Cool. Thanks for the help everybody.
