How long to burp and open jars ?

So I’ve hung my buds for 4 days and they maybe could of gone 1 more day drying but they are still pretty much ready for the cure, I’m away from home for 3 days and have decided to bring them with me.

I’ve done a fair bit of research on the burping and cure etc and I don’t have any hygrometer so no way off telling humidity.

I jarred them up in glass mason jars 3 quarters full and after a few hours they are barely sticking together but you can tell there’s still probably just a bit more moisture then it should have in there.

The buds still smell good with a bit of hay smell aswel as is expected, my question is how long should I open my jars for to burp them and how often if there’s still a bit of moister and when can I start leaving them closed longer. I don’t know how fast mold can develop and I think I may be leaving the jars open a bit too long because of fear of mold and I know it needs to be closed to cure properly. Any help will be much appreciated , cheers.

Honestly if you smell hay it’s already ruined. Hate to be so blunt. It would have been best to let the buds hang to the point of being overdry, then to take them down with moisture still in them.

You see when you get the hay smell it isn’t going away. No amount of burping will help, to try an minimize the hay smell I would leave them open for atleast 30 mins, every 3-4 hours.

If you overdry your buds you can add a Boveda or Likewise humidity pack and bring them back to life. Yes the smoke may be harsher due to it being drier but the smell will be perfect.

Burp Your Nugs

Definition – What does Burp Your Nugs mean?

To “burp your nugs” is to remove air from glass jars that contain bud material during the curing process. As cannabis buds cure and dry, moisture is released and CO2 gas is produced. When cured in a sealed container, pressure builds up. Burping the jars allows both pressure and moisture to be released.

MaximumYield explains Burp Your Nugs

The cannabis curing process is actually quite lengthy and complicated, with a number of important steps. Air drying is one of the initial steps, but bud material cannot be left “out in the wild”, or it will lose too much moisture. To combat that problem, and to ensure that optimum moisture levels can be achieved while also reaching the right flavor production, cannabis can be matured in sealed glass jars (mason jars, for instance). When pressure and moisture build up within those jars, burping is required. In cannabis culture, this would be a need to, “burp your nugs”.

Burping is a common process found in any fermenting or maturation process where the product is stored in a sealed container. For instance, fermenting foods in mason jars also requires burping to expel excess gasses and pressure within the jar.

There are many variables that determine how often you must “burp your nugs,” and for how long. One of those is the desired humidity level in the finished cannabis. Another is the starting humidity level of the plant material. Of course, you also need to account for other factors, such as the temperature of the area where the drying is taking place, the altitude, and even the humidity level outside of the sealed jars.

Most growers burp their jars once per day, for about 10 seconds per burp. However, that schedule can and should be adjusted to meet individual unique maturation conditions.
