New wineador set-up help?

Recommended Posts

my current humidor is full, im currently thinking on getting a wineador for some boxes i have on the way, (NewAir AW-181E) is gonna be mostly to stored boxes. How to set it up? Can i keep right humidity using only boveda packs? In my current humidor i have a cigar oasis that works great, however the idea of using only boveda packs since easier and cheaper if it actually does the same job. Thanks in advance.

I use 2 of these, stacked, and use the large Boveda packs in both. Never had an issue. Let it season for 24 hours, filled with boxes, and holds great at 65-66/65-66. Depends on your environment where it will be stored as well. Keep it out of direct sunlight.

I have one cedar shelf on the bottom, and one closer to the top. No more, so I can fit max amount of boxes. I also put one CPU fan in each setup on a timer as well so there is no moisture

You mean just one 320 gram boveda is good enough for the whole wineador? Also are yours plugged in or unplugged, i ask because i read that some people unplugged them. Thank you for replying

Ha no, that was plural for sure. I *think* I have at least 6 of the large Boveda cardboard packs in each. The CPU fans are setup on a timer to run for 5 minutes every 30 minutes, I believe. I also have everything plugged into an APC battery backup in case I lost power (so the timer doesn't reset itself and so the unit doesn't turn on).

I've got a Whynter 251 using it for boxes with 4 x 320g at 65%RH Boveda and it works fine and dandy.  Drain hole plugged, no pooling or condensation issues.  Although I likely only have about 350 sticks in mine at the moment.  I haven't tried a CPU fan yet, but mine certainly seems to exhibit the whole humid air rises phenomenon.  Doesn't bother me too much as there's only a registered couple % difference between the top and bottom.

I probably have about a dozen of the normal sized bovedas in mine. Probably not necessary, but I've never had any issues. Definitely do not use the oasis in a wineador. Theres no way for the excess moisture to get out, and it could get bad fast.

you'll find its far easier than you're probably making it in your head :)

 

if you're not worried about temps (most people's houses are fine temp-wise) then just toss your boxes and bovedas in and go :)
