Greetings . Months have passed and all the advice much appreciated has been put to use . Lets start by saying no chest infections at all . Let me also add I've wrecked on the proceeds which will keep me shite faced for many months to come . Conclusion . If you are in bud and see bud rot DO NOT THROW IT. Save the good looking buds and dry them . Select the worst and throw . Dry the rest and silk screen or bubble bag .. I'll duck down low avoiding the flack but quite frankly a lot of hot air, paranoia and snobbery was offered but also excellent advice given . For the scare mongers we walk around breathing spores,bacteria,yeasts and all sorts of microbes all day .Yes we also get chest infections specially at the end of year when many infections are around . Don't throw it process it .Not one of the very many has had a chest infection but have had some lovely happy heads on going home.
