Storing PU at wine cellar temp & RH

by iamlost » Aug 24th, '17, 23:24

Has anyone really tried storing it at 13 degrees (wine cellar temperature)? I'm really tempted to try. There are many parts of central and northern China which have harsher temp part of the year and some pu I tried stored there seem to be fine (at least to me).

Anyone have any experience or idea or opinion? I'm quite new to this.

Lower temps can lead to more condensation. Too much and too low temp can give you a nice surprise. I tried this in a small wine cooler. Results not so good.

Unplug the fridge. Add something to increase the r/h. Try also to increase the temperature if you can.
