Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Padrons, and Dirty Rats, and, and, and "many of them".

That many cigars all with different tobaccos from different regions and different ages, all stored at 72 degrees and 72%RH, all magically...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Sorry, that's mold.



Don't hold your breath kid.



Mold comes in various colors. White is fairly common actually. Mold forms unevenly and tends to be splotchy, exactly like the cigars...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Wish I had a nickel for every time I've heard that.

Could have bought a couple boxes of Behikes by now.

My money is on mold at those temps and humidity.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

You can build the whole thing out of mahogany if you want. Spanish cedar is not a cedar, it's actually in the mahogany family. At one time, humidors used to be built entirely out of mahogany,...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Cigar caddies have rubber gaskets and seal at least just as well or possibly even better than tupperware. If your cigars are at the right humidity already, they should be fine for a week without any...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Certain Gurkha cigars are infamous for fragile, splitting and exploding wrappers.

Can't really say how long they will need to sit to stabilize without knowing how far off they are, or if this...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

BTW, I'm not aware of any other modern, pocketable V-cutters that use the backwards raked blade design like the Wolf & XV where the blade starts at the tip of the head and works inward. Every other...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Then get a Wolf V-Cutter. It has the same blade, as in exactly the same from the same knifemaker, Wolfertz, as the Xikar XV, just comes in a plastic body. Costs about $15 to $20.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

The size ratings of humidors are estimates and not all of them are based on the same size cigars.

Put your cigars in and see how they fit. You don't want it completely stuffed, but if it's...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

You can check on the back of the hygrometer for a recessed screw, usually a standard slot head, that you can turn to adjust the reading, although, in reality, a large percentage of the cheap analog...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Depends on the volume of the bag and how dry the air was when you started, but you should be seeing something pretty close to the final reading after about 8 hours.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Opinions vary, but I've found that unless you are in an extreme climate, leaving it out of the humidor for a short period of time won't change anything, so it really doesn't mater. You can take it...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Probably a bit of both. If you get your humidor down closer to 65RH and you'll likely have less burn problems, although when you're smoking in 90%-100% humidity air, things can easily go awry.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

No problem, it's a common misunderstanding, I made it myself many years ago too.

I suppose you could knock the pin out with a roll punch but I would worry that the pin could be a press fit and if...

Does it look something like this?

The blade isn't removable.

You could disassemble it by knocking the pivot pin out, but that...

:tpd:


I'm not sure you'll ever be able to get the smell of the rum out of there.

Also, the lower cost humidors are typically constructed from a almost paper thin SC veneer applied over press...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

How long the batteries last depends on the hygrometer and the batteries. Certain types & brands of batteries will last more or less than others, but it's probably best to change it once every 6...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

You're using the floral foam humidifier (aka: "credo") I take it?

Not an uncommon occurrence, considering it's a perfect environment for mold to grow, and PG solution won't completely stop it.
