So I just trimmed my first bb3 today I cut last Thursday. The moisture meter was jumping between 10.9-11.8%. not thinking t trimmed in my bedroom that is 20%rh now a hour after being in jars at 40% Rh did I mess up trimming in low Rh or does it take time for the inner moisture to work through the dry and even out the Rh may not be what I want but soon it level out in a day hopefully go up. Oh was in a dark bathroom with humidifier going 55%-65% rh
I wouldn’t think you’d lose much moisture in the time it takes to trim no matter what the RH of the room you’re in. Leave the jars closed til tomorrow and then see what reading you get. If it’s not over 62% you don’t need to burp it. But I’d bet money you’ll have a higher reading after your jars sit for a while.
I tried to use those wood moisture meters but i find them to be kinda garbage. You re better off making sure your dry room never reaches below 50% and to harvest it as soon as the branches start to get snappy
Im with @Outlaw that humidity reading should come up more by tomorrow. If not you can add some fresh just snipped fan leaves or lemon or orange peeling pieces to raise it a little. I experimented with humidity packs for a year or more and came to the conclusion they suck the terps flavor and smell out of your buds so i got rid of those, but they did stabilize the humidity well though
I use both methods. The moisture meters work well i think, or at least for me. It gives me numerical constants to look for to match the snap method to be more precise in my process
I agree the moisture meter doesn’t do me much good either. I am anxious to use it the next time someone tells me the firewood they have is dry.
When I used to use jars, I would burp them like this with a little air pump.
A couple years ago I let a harvest over dry. I filled a trash bag with humid air, and would drop the pump in the bag sealing the opening around the tubes and cord. Then pump the humid air into the jars. This way I was burping and bringing up the humidity at the same time. After about 5 days the weed was back to were it should be.
