Rubbermaid containter, airtight?
    #1289112 - 02/07/03 04:11 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Are rubbermaid containers airtight enough will I have to add something? Also, I haven't been able to find a humidity meter thing, anybody have an idea of how much it costs, where to get one, or if I even really need one. Like is there a way to tell it's at the right humidity without one?

those containers are just fine.
you can tell the humidity by the amount of condensation on the walls - hygrometers are notoriously unreliable, anyway.

:laugh:

How much condensation am I looking for? Sorry for all the questions I've been posting on the forums but I really want to get this right the first time.

just add about an inch layer of perlite, make sure you wet it pretty good but don't put too much water... perhaps you want 1/2 inch of free standing water. You should be fine humidty wise then, that will keep the humidty any where from 75 to 85%

except if doing cakes you want your humidity at 95 to 100 and if doing casings you want more like 85 to 95. if you're doing cakes and therefore want a high humidity but can't get something to measure humidity, then you can eyeball it by trying to raise the humidity to the point where there is condensation (water drops) on the inside of the container. if there is a good bit of condensation then the humidity is probably in the 90's where you'll want it.
