Fill the bottom with DW, and throw Boveda packs on top of the rack. Seal it up and wait! Took about 2 weeks to fully charge six 60g 65% packs.

Flaco_ Yeah, I'm going with the 60s from now on, I think. Being new to Bovedas, I just kinda dove in head first.


In all fairness, though, rotating the 320s was mentioned in this thread, and that might be a way to go.

WaxxonMTL wow.. guess I made a mistake by buying those 320gram 65% !! I thought I was a smart boy doing so in my wineador. Guess I will have to re-buy the 60gram 65% instead. Thanks for creating this thread.

Flaco_ OK thanks. I guess that solves that.

The exterior "paper" material on the 320g is different than it is on the 60g. It tends to retain moisture and not dry completely after being submerged in DW.
Of the five that I tried, two dried sufficiently to be used again in my coolidors. Three appeared to dry and then would turn wet again when placed back in to the coolidor environment. I ended up throwing those three away.

Scotchpig I have a veggie steamer, threw a handful of the 60g packs in, and ran it for a few 10 min cycles. The packaging came out wet, and the media was recharged. Not sure if this would work with the larger packs, or if it is advisable but it worked for me.

Flaco_ Thanks, y'all, for all the info. Got me thinking.

So here's what I did just now:
The Bovedas are sitting on the aforementioned containers of water, so up off the floor of the tupper. I moved the whole mess out into the laundry room which is built onto the outside of the house, thus not in the air conditioning. It's 100į outside right now. Then I added an inch or so of DW to the floor of the tupper. That ought to get it humid in there! I can, and probably will move this re-hydration operation out to my shop where it's even hotter.

I've never been accused of being the most patient guy in the world.

tacket I havenít had to recharge mine yet, but the plan is to do it before they get super dry and Iíll likely leave Ďem on a window sill to get the ambient heated water in action. Iíll set a rotation cycle where Iíll let it sit for a month, and then put it back in the humidor, swapping it out for another pack that needs topping off. Rinse, repeat.

Humphrey's Ghost 320g packs take a long, long time to recharge. A couple of months in my experience. I haven't had good luck submerging them in DW as they don't seem to dry as completely as the 60g packs do.
