  1. Yeah, I wonder who got em. ......confirmed
  2. Looks like a little plume to me
  3. John, it's not a Rye Old-fashioned, it's just an Old Fashioned. Drives me nuts when bartenders act like using Rye is such a novel concept.
  4. mistake was thinking a discontinued cigar wouldn't qualify as regular production........stupid me?
  5. Smoked this with 2 other FOH members. Ugly as hell stick, veiny with parts of the wrapper pealing. 1/3: Black pepper, maybe some coffee, definite leather. Pretty harsh/bitter. 2/3: Black pepper, some sweet spice. Mellowed out a bit. 3/3: Black pepper, coffee, leather, harshness/bitterness is back with vengeance. Dumped the stick with 1.5" remaining. I really hope I don't own a box of these, but I think I do.
  6. Cal 25. Thanks, sailing offers a lot of great photo opportunities.
  7. Ah the Punch Punch! Seems my palate may not be all that bad after all. 1/5
  8. Thanks for the advice. I'm currently using 2 fans that come with Bob's humidifer, 1 Oust, and both top and bottom have a fan in the back that runs slowly almost consistently. That's an interesting point re the condenser and I'll try to keep that in mind re fan placement. Luckily I'm at the end of my buying streak, so just a few boxes left.....famous last words.
  9. I didn't want the wifi gateway because I have no reason to see what cooling cycle my wineador is in while i'm away from the house, it just wasn't worth the money. (Maybe if I were to travel for months on end?) Whenever I get home it updates it automatically and I can see how it's doing, which is always the same, the more it stabilizes the less I care to check it. The reason I went for the Acurites instead of the Sensor push is because all I wanted was to be able to walk up to the unit and quickly glance at different levels and see if theres much of a delta, I didn't want to open the app every time. I was able to spend $8/each so $32 for 4 instead of $200 for 4 sensorpushes. If I want to log different areas, I can just move the sensorpush I have. It's not necessary to have more than 1 in my opinion, John is the best, he created a complex product off of phone conversations, did it in a month and a half whereas Ive heard forest takes forever, and I could call him any time and he would pick up the phone. His prices were also very reasonable. I kept all my cigars in our winelocker, which is stable at 55/65.
  10. Once the shelves went in and I saw the humidity and temp stabilize, I decided I was good to load it up. Thanks for the advice. Give it a few months, you'll get there .
  11. Never, i check it enough as is, I don't want that kind of access. No, actually Bobs twin humidifier comes with 2 fans that you can program how often they go on. Mine go on for 1 minute every 10 minutes. i forgot to mention I have 1 oust fan too.
  12. This is great, thank you!
  13. I've been working on this project for the past few months and wanted to get everything running to a point I found acceptable before posting, I think I'm there. The whynter 251 was working great, but I learned my lesson quick as to the capacity I was going to require so I immediately started doing research into large capacity, active humidification and temperature regulated options which were basically DIY or an Aristocrat. I chose the DIY route for cost purposes, below is a build and quick review of each component. Is it perfect? No, but after testing the interior of a box and seeing the stability in temp and humidity, I'm satisfied. Here was my build: Danby Silhoutte 129 bottle cooler dual zone The cooler is great, dual zone, max temp of 64 degrees, cycles about once an hour. With my setup the humidity drops to around 52 percent and then recovers within about 2 minutes, when I put my tracker inside a box, the drop doesn't even register. I've found that the interior of both dress boxes and cabs reflect the average humidity and temperature and don't fluctuate more than 1%. My average temp is 65 and humidity is 66. Bob Staebell's Twin Humidifier Large Bob from Aristocrat has what I consider the best active humidifier on the market. That being said, where he shines is his customer service. The guy is working on 10 large cabinet humidors at a time, yet he always manages to answer his phone and help me trouble shoot his humidifier which unfortunately I had to do multiple times. I was able to adjust, time on time off, humidity set points, etc. One day I'll definitely invest in an Aristocrat, mainly because Bob is an awesome guy to work with. Had a buddy drill a hole in the bottom section out for the power cord and that's all I needed to do to get it working. 6 Custom Spanish Cedar Shelves & 1 Drawer made by John Nelson at Johns Wood Works John Nelson is amazing, the guy spent so much time with me on the phone and via e-mail making sure my measurements were exact, and with the type of shelves that this thing requires it's a miracle he was able to produce a product that fit perfectly. His options on veneers and pricing were better than anyone else I spoke to, his turn around was 1.5 months delivered. The product speaks for itself, and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again in the future, A++ . 5 lbs of heartfelt beads I put 1/2-1lb on each shelf to help regulate humidity, I haven't taken them out to test what it would be without them but I'm satisfied with the recovery time and consistency of humidity so I would recommend them. 1 Sensor Push Sensor Push is a necessary evil, I hate this thing so much because it shows me all the flaws, but it's also helped me make adjustments to drastically change the fluctuations. 4 AcuRite Indoor Humidity Monitors Acurite Humidity Monitors are placed in the high and low of each section so I can glance at how each section is performing individually.
  14. Tupperdore Pros: Inexpensive Stable Environment Cons: No temperature regulation Wineador Pros: Stable Environment Temperature Regulation Cons: Cost Whynter 251S has proven to be a great set up in the past for me.
