A question about humidification beads and cigar dryness

Just throw a couple bowls of distilled water in and shut it for a couple weeks. Of course take your stogies out while ya season. After a couple weeks check your Rh. Should be high 80ís. At that point remove the Dw and replace with your beads. Close again till your numbers get to were ya want them. Then your set to go! Load up and enjoy.

Those beads should stay good for a long time without having to recharge. As long as your seasoned properly.

I think the root of your "problem" is relying on the Humidimeter. Based on reviews, they appear to be inconsistent from one unit to the next. Some say theirs is spot-on, but many reviewers indicate the reading is significantly lower than expected.

I also question whether accepted correct environmental RH necessarily means the cigars' internal RH will, or even should, exactly match it. You've expressed that your cigars feel dry to you, yet made no indication of how they smoke. Could it be that your assessment of what feels dry is distorted by the feel of over-humidified cigars as received from online vendors or so often encountered in LCS humidors?

You get a load of help here this is great! It is very possible that what you asked could be the case! The cigars when you get them always smell like tobacco and sometimes smoke them when you get them they get like pillows in your mouth and the burn is wonky! Let them dry a bit they don’t smell as much the burn is better. The cigar in question burned well not a problem, but was a change in flavor and the smoke didn’t seems as creamy, I lack ways to describe what can be sensed! After thinking about your question it is very well possible that I have been normalized to a higher humidity in the sticks! I will continue with the course I am on and do more testing!! Thanks
