    I got a 50 count box and Drymistat humidification tube. My calibrated hydrometer reads on average from 71%-74% I've been reading and seeing that people are saying that range is way too moist!! I bought the Drymistat because it seemed as those set it and forget it type of deals but it seems as...

    I'm assuming that's my problem anyway. Tried smoking a cigar last night, and it would not stay lit, and despite a nice draw, I was barely getting any smoke in my mouth. Got so annoying that I gave up on it barely a third of the way in. My question is, if in fact that's the issue, what's the...

    I've been having issues lately with smokes from my humi unraveling, and I cannot figure out why. My hygro accurately reads in the 70/70 range, and the smokes pass the "pinch test" and are not obviously too hard or too soft.

    I pulled a HdM Dark Knight out of my humi, which is reading 65%, and it was way overhumidified. I just salt tested and found that my hygro is accurate. I thought it would be fine based on reading from hygro(which has been steady for a long time), but it tunneled, draw was impossible and was...

    some say that if your cigars are over humidified the ash is dark some say under is white can you guys and gals clarify that for me also what causes a cigar wrapper to unravel is that under or over I heard so many stories ???

    There are a lot of threads about how to maintain proper humidity. Buy why do you need to humidify tobacco at all? It seems that the flavor of the cigar is held within the leaf and that will change with time as chemical processes change the composition of the leaf. How is humidity involved...
