haha.. i like the blue eye poping smily!! hahaaa haah aa....

ok, here goes..

I baught a vicks cool mist, and some white dryer hose, the kind you hook up to your clothes dryer!!

i removed the built in filter from the vicks and just happens that the hose will fit in the hole! yipee!!

So, to filter the air, i took a big ball of polyfill and stuffed it into a small nylon sac ( Kerr apple jelly bag ), and stuffed this into the dryer hose.

How efficient will this be? i got a 15 $ metal shelve from the hardware store and covered it with vapor barier plastic, put the vicks humidifyer inside the shelve unit and ran the hose outside into a rubbermaid container.

Hope this helps someone.. seems to work pretty well so far.. just the filter that i'm not sure about..

i can't afford a 30 $ hepa right now.. so this will have to do until i have more $$$..

oh, btw, this sucker puts out alot of moisture,,, i have it on a timer 1 hour on, 3 hrs off.. and the humidity ranges from 80 to 100.

How important is it to have a constant humidity level???

it depends on what tek you're using. if you're doing pf tek cakes, you don't want it to ever go below 95 %. casings are more forgiving but still you should try to keep humidity relatively stable.

oh,, forgot to mention... yes ,, i'm doing all casings.. no more cakes for george!!! haha..

i've noticed my casing layer seems to dry out a little but is colonizing nicely so far!!

Humidity rises and falls in nature, day and night . right?

i'd like to be able to time it in smaller increments than 1 hr, but my timer won't permit me to do it!
