    Here are some notes from a friend on the cold curing process using a refridgerator....



    What you'll need:
    1 large working fridge with wire racks. If no wire racks, make them from hardware cloth or something.
    1 small circulation fan ~6 inch

    Process:
    Trim buds as usual, lay them out in one layer on each rack, not stacked or touching too much. Hang others for efficient space use.
    Place the fan in the bottom of the fridge pointing up and turn on low-medium power.
    Set the fridge on a nice medium-cold temp. The fan itself will create some heat, so you'll need to adjust the fridge to find your sweet spot. You want a normal fridge temp for best aroma. Close the reefer full of reefer. The seal will envelop the fan cord nicely.

    Try not to open more than once a day (yeah right) as this lets new humid air in, slowing the dessication process. Turn the buds once a day or so, to make sure they dry evenly and don't mold.

    Depending on fan speed, fridge temp, and amount of herb, the flowers will be fully dry in about 1-3 weeks. The stems will still be very flexible and wet, moreso than in normal room temp drying.

    When the nugs are at this stage, turn the fan off to let the stem moisture sweat out into the flowers for a day or two with the fridge still on. Then turn the fan back on for a couple days to get the nugs to the point of being dry but with flexible (neither wet nor stiff) stems.

    note: This is techincally cold drying, but cold curing had a better ring to it

    Now you can remove your nugs and cure them in glass jars as normal i.e. opening them daily to smell and allow sweated moisture out.

    Why do this?:
    1.) All those sensitive, very volatile oils that give the light, perfumy aromas of fresh bud are largely lost with room temp drying. With this method, they are locked into the bud as the temps are too low for them to volatilize much. The result is unparalleled aroma.
    2.) Locking all the smell in means this process is way on the downlow.

    That is one kick A..e drying process man, I was just talking to someone today on that but not the fridge way but in dark barns after an outdoor harvest. Used to only do this if it was real good to all the harvest. Had to be good though, otherwise it was hung any where we could. JD Cold process is good if you have patience and you want a real nice smoke, EDIT Sativa cured this way is the best smoke I have had yet, 28 yrs. Always smoked in a big fat Doobie and sometimes I don't mind not sharing either
