Are you saying I should let my bunches dry longer before wrapping them? I was actually worried that I was letting them dry too much because in the factories they press bunches in a mold for only a total of about 1h. Perhaps with the paper method it is better to let them dry longer? I have two more experimentals that I bunched last night and I was planning to wrap them today, but maybe I'll give them another night to see what happens. I live in the Pacific Northwest so the humidity even in my house is not too low. I don't think there is any risk of drying them too quickly here....I do see some what looks to be what I'll call early wrapping. (let the dolls dry before the wrapper goes on.) the paper will wick away so, swapping it out will move it along.
Casing is really dependent on specific needs.
It can when you know how to do it. Not so much though. Without getting in a ditch, it is a sales tactic.Do wrapper leaves really matter as much for flavor as people say? I'm thinking in the future I'll just settle on a pretty wrapper that looks nice and not hunt for flavor in a wrapper.
hehe.. deep is that hole. know your the one with the shovel when it comes to rabbit holes. The Vuelta Abajo seed may be the most deep flavor but all the Cibao Valley stuff is very nice.What are some really strongly flavored fillers that I can try (even non-USA). I would like to go to the far ends of the spectrum and see if I can really tell much of a difference. I'm really happy with what I have right now, but I want to take the red pill. I must know how deep the rabbit hole goes.
