Hi there. Long story short, I have to hit the road for 3-4 days and am in the first week of burping--they will only have been in the jars for 2-3 days when I depart. Stems were snapping dry and outer leaves crispy when they were first jarred. So I'm wondering what's the safest course at this point for the jarred buds: leave them sealed at room temp for 3-4 days, sealed in fridge for 3-4 days, or freeze? Or something else I haven't thought of? Temps here will be in the 80s while I'm gone. Thanks!

placing them in much larger containers so the contained air is greater for the rh to move to might be the way to go? mebbe placing lidless jars into a 5gal bucket with a sealed lid? muA

i'd leave them in a cool dry dark place with the lids off. you can re-wet easy enough but mold is harder to clean up. my twocents.gif

Thanks for that--unsealed jars in a larger sealed container. I've got a few days to see how much they re-hydrate in the jars. If it's too much I'll probably avoid sealing them completely in anything, and just use a lidded cooking pot or something that will allow a very small amount of air exchange. Better to have to re-hydrate a few buds next week (by jarring them together with their new-picked sister's) than to risk mold or freezer slush.
