PMP/Casing Humidity question...
    #2533850 - 04/07/04 04:52 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Ive read that the best humidity level for casings is around 80%...

if using the PMP with lavarock/airstones/water... would reducing the amt of water in the lavarocks and increasing the amount the lid of the rubbermaid decrease the humidity from the intended 95% for cakes, to the 80% or so for the fruiting of the casings?

and if so, should the lid always be that open to let the air exchange, humidity levels stay similar... or should it just be fanned out for a short time a day to remove the excess humidity?

I'm not sure what you mean by this. but you should have the humidity around 82-92% If its higher than that I've read that it isn't a big deal some people have there's at 95%. If you want lower humidity then either adding another vent hole, or a larger hole will lower the humidity. Do this until you get your desired humidity.

Well I don't know much about the PMP but this is what I do. I put two holes in the lid abuout a inch in size. I cut two pieces of rubber big enough to cover the holes. Put a screw threw the rubber piece and mount it in a way that is slides over the hole. You can slide the rubber piece to make the holes larger or smaller controling the amount of humidity you need.

These were done with rh in the high 90s
