Brown Paper Bag Method

  1. Hey all,
    I have been reading up on the BP bag method lately and it seems pretty interesting. I have a small Sour Diesel plant that will be ready to pull in a couple weeks and was seriously thinking of trying it with this one......just for kicks. For those of you who do it or know how to do it, what I'm understanding is......

    1) Buds are trimmed directly off the wet plant when pulled
    2) They are placed at the bottom of a brown paper grocery bag.......not exceeding one allow for air, with the bag then tightly sealed afterwards
    3) The bag is opened every 2 or 3 days for about 5 minutes to allow any moisture to escape
    4) After a 7 to 10 day period, the buds are then transferred into mason jars, where they are burped a couple times per week for a month or so

    Seems really simple, but I'm sure there are a number of things I'm missing here. Anyone have any knowledge of this or any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

  4. When I run out of room in my drying space i use paper bags. I do it differently though. I would have to have a ton of bags if i only put 1 layer in each. Just not possible. I cut a bag into long strips and mix it in with the buds. I move the buds around every day or 2. I fill the bags about 1/4 to a 1/3 full

  5. Thanks for your response! So I'm assuming the paper adheres to the buds and stops the moisture? How long do you leave the bag open when moving the buds around?
  6. The buds do not adhere to the paper fortunetly, that would suck. The paper helps draw out moisture.

    I open the sack, toss them around and close the sack back up. Theres no need to leave the sack open. Paper breathes, it's not like a sealed glass jar that needs burped during curing.
