How do i drop humidity on my PMP ?
    #4245298 - 06/01/05 07:48 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I have a 13gallon tub with ~3" of geolite on the bottom, 2 14" airstones, and maybe 1-2" of water. No matter what i do, my digital hygrometer is constantly reading 95+ RH. I was actually pumping air straight into the bin (not through the stones) and the humidity is still really high.
I did the salt test with my hygrometer and it was reading 75-78RH so it seems accurate. This RH is fine for cakes, but not casings.. It seems really hard to hold the RH needed for casing.

my pump:

You could try introducing more air by manual fanning. Besides that  :shrug: I don't know.

Or maybe cut more exhaust holes.

Have you tested this % with a couple of casing containers in there. That might lower it a little being as your blocking some surface area on the rocks~less surface area less humidity.
