pretty cool Santaro bro! By semi dryed, about what % RH are you talking if tested? And is this a sativa only kind of project? or can indica growers do it the same?

Edit: ahh i see, they are using acuall cobs and then bury it... what are you using san to wrap it?

heya stonky :)

 

"semi-dry" means not all dried up, but also not fresh

... a few days drying is enough at my place.

 

i used baking-paper and have noy tried it with any indicas yet.

the rather bland tasting satties benefit from this a bit more, imo.

opinions differ, tho ...

@snookster

tap until week six, then some "SANnutes"

and then back to water only until chop ;)

 

she looks mistreated, lol. it was a mere 2-liter-pot -about

half a gallon- for the complete cycle from seed to chop ...

 

started 25cm and ended 165cm, haha.

(without including the height of the pot).

 

yes, brother, the cob indeed looks like a wurst now, haha :)

 

 

 

@elro, mate

i was inspired by this thread here:

https://www.icmag.co...ad.php?t=309172

 

it made me wonder about the effects and at another place

they were all quite hysteric about this, so i just went for it

and tried it with half the angola (... while i left the other half

dry and cure out in a glass as usual to be able to compare)

 

now i understand how the choco-taste came into thai-

sticks, as the chocolate thai is mostly just spicy smoke.

 

:spliff:

Nice cob, San. I did the same with zamaldelica and the smoke changes over time. Wait a couple/few months and you should see a big difference. I certainly did. And the smoke is definitely smoother.

Hi just.blaze.

 

Thai stick & Malawi Cob are different. Malawi Cob was originally wrapped in corn leaves to cure (some say it was buried) but Thai Stick is simply buds wound around a stem or sliver of bamboo traditionally not a long matchstick then tied together in a slab of Thai sticks. The curing would happen as they travelled for months by sea, it would sweat & tacked on that dark chocolate colour & unmistakeable taste & high.

 

Peace

I never saw that before San. /Bravo!

 

I have been told of some wonderful stories about buried pot in Africa. I wonder if that does some similar process but I never tried anything like that.

I really don't mean to be rude, but that seriously looks odd as crap, lol, never heard or seen this one. This is suppose to make it better?

bubbla, what happens with the bud is the same

with both *wink* = fermentation through sweating.

 

gardenartus, yep supposed to "make it better". but it made it just different, imo.

read the thread i linked up. many do that now and are happy with their results.

 

hempy, burying is traditional cob-curing ...

"mine" is the home-made silly SANversion :)

Hi Santero.

 

I know mate :)

 

Do you think that the corn leaves may let more moisture out due to them not being airtight?

 

Looks bloody nice though !

 

Peace

Hate to dig up an old thread, but I gotta know....

 

Did you try it, if so, tell us what you think.

hey buddy!

 

yeah I tried it with the emdog #4 from Silas. I didn't let it go till Christmas but around two months, mine didn't get brown, I think it was already too dry but it kind of 'melted' together. the effect and taste was great, but not very different from ordinary cured buds. it was a little bit sweeter :)

 

now that I saw this thread again I think I'm gonna try it ones more!

Make sure you leave a little oxygen in the bag if you vacuum seal it. That way you can get that condensation. I want to try it.

 

peace
