Perlite or drip sheild? Both?
    #494956 - 12/18/01 05:12 PM (16 years, 10 months ago)

What are the pros and cons of each?



When it comes
I'll know, I know
Just take my clothes and leave
And I'll be gone

They're two different things man. Drip shields dont create hummidity. They're just slaps of glass/plexiglass/lexan or whatever to stop the roof from dripping on your cake.
I personally just covered the lid with vasoline to stop it from forming droplets of water. I use 2 inches of damp perlite for hummidity, and have weatherstripping to help the seal.
After fanning the CO2 out, I mist with a spray bottle of 90% H2O and 10% H2O2
You can also use cool mist hummidifiers, but they cost money, and pump out a lot of hummidity for small operations.
Other methods include fish tank heaters in a tray of water (heats, plus causes more water to evaporate into the air) and air stones to name a few

All events stated by myself are only fictionous stories, any relations to true events are intirely coincidental.
