That is what it sounds like to me. Are your beads saturated/clear?? If that is the case you need to dry some out to absorb the extra humidity. You had a thread stating your analog was reading up in the 80's earlier, so depending on how long the sticks were that moist will dictate how long it will take to stabilize them. Definitely sounds like they need to slowly dry out a bit.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply:tu These are the cigars that were in the humi when the humidity was in the 80's.
That's what I had figured, so I would try to gradually bring them back down to 65-70. Do it too fast and they are bound to split or burst. Just slowly try to get them back to prime smoking range. As far as the beads...Basically set and forget to a point. You will still have to keep them hydrated once in awhile, but mostly they will take care of themselves and your humidity. I try to keep mine in the 50/50 range (1/2 clear and 1/2 opaque), but others my do differently. If they are all clear then there is no way to remove the excess humidity. What RH beads are you using?
