what rh of humidity beads?

What % of humidity beads do you use? In the past I used the crystal kitty litter so no % and think it kept it around 70 or a bit less. I came across the humidor I really wanted for a good price and will need to put beads in it. I am thinking of replacing the foam with beads first and then if I have to I'll use a stocking.

Don't ever think the reason I am peaceful is because I forgot how to be violent.

If you are storing mostly CCs then 62%. If you will have a mix of CCs and NCs then 65% and leave the CCs on the bottom.

It will be a long time before I get any cc, so if 65% is where it needs to be

Those are the ranges most folks around here store at but it really boils down to where you find you enjoy your cigars at the most.

65% is a good starting point. If you find your humidor leaks a lot and your cigars are too dry, you might step up to 69%. If you get burn issues and bitter taste (after your cigars are rested and acclimated), try 62%.
