    **Feel free to post your experience as well** When I first started down the Coolidor Route, everything was going great. Super easy to set up, collection was growing, humidity was "mostly" in check, until it wasn't.... Wintertime in Florida is the easiest I've ever experienced in keeping...

    Less than 3 months ago, it was cooler out, I didn't smoke often, and I thought my China-made 150-ct humidor would never run out of room. Now, thanks to you guys, I smoke 5+ per week, I want to try new/better sticks, rest new purchases, and experiment with aging. I need more humidor room. And I...

    First off, I am new to the site and somewhat new to cigars. I'm 24 and slowly starting to move out of my 50 count desktop humidor. The slope is icy! I love the site. Here is my situation: I have a boveda pack (which I am recharging now) and a "cigar saver" disc (that came with hardly any...

    Hello, recently I've purchased two batches of Heartfelt beads calibrated on RH 70% and with both I had the same problem. After I got the beads, I put them into a tupperware with a small bowl of distilled water next to them and left it for a three days to rehydrate. After most of them (not all)...

    Hi, I have a 100-count humidor and I am currently using a crystal gel humidifier filled with propylene glycol. Since winters are very dry in Quebec, I struggle to keep RH above 60% RH. So last week I ordered a medium sized heartfelt beads tube. 1) Would it be a bad idea to use beads together...

    I recently purchased some 65%RH Heartfelt beads about 3 weeks ago and they have worked great. I purchased the smaller version of the stainless steel rectangle humidifier (covers 1080 cubic inches) and an extra large tube humidifier (covers 2000 cubic inches). All of these are 65%RH. I let the...

    Hello everyone, I am new to cigar smoking and I just got my first humidor in yesterday. I was reading reviews and most people said the best way to go was with humidity beads, so I decided to order some (should be getting them tomorrow). My question is, what would be the best way to store them...

    Ok, I am gonna try the heartfelt beads in my second humidor that I just got. It is a 100-count humidor with a tray and about 900 cubic inches. I want to go with 65% beads I think. Now here is my dilemma and my question: I am thinking about getting the 1080 cubic inch stainless rectangle...

  13. Cigar Questions
    Question: I have the crystal jar humidors for my 100 count humidor, my hygrometer is reading 76 I believe that is to high. How do I lower it? I have two jars in there if I take one out wouldn't that lower it to much?

    Hey y'all. I'm a thirtysomething father of 2 who has smoked since college. I smoke on average 2-3 cigars a month. I don't own a humidor, but I think I'm getting one for Christmas. I sent some links to various well reviewed beginner humidors to the wife as a hint. I look forward to learning...

    I was originally going to buy a humidor but then came across pictures of tupperdors and coolidors. And decided to make myself a tupperdor. I plan on buying a good rubbermaid container. And people said to wash it first to get the plastic smell out. So what soap would be best? And when it comes to...

    Time for another noob question :) I'm trying to determine what media I want for my wineador when I get it next month. Price isn't really an issue for me, my main concern is space. I know most people around here swear by the kitty litter option, but I'm curious if that's because it works...

    A few weeks ago I changed to Heartfelt beads and from that moment on my problems began...tunneling, channeling until the then darn things just wouldn't burn. Hygrometer says a perfect 65 RH. I'm like what the hey is going on. The cigars are soft as naugahyde in a car seat seat. Well if there...

    I took you guys advice and dumped the credo & got the 65 Rh beads. Me wanting instant gratification (before reading the directions)spritz about 50% of the beads put them in the humi about 10 pm last nite Rh was at 75. 16 hrs later Rh is still @ 75. Should I have a lil patience and wait for Rh to...

    I have had a 65 rh stick of beads in my 50 ct humidor for about a week and the hygrometer is still reading about 70 percent rh. Does it take a few weeks for my humidor to stabilize to 65 percent or am I doing something wrong. I think it just needs time. Any advice.
