I agree with @Sunvalley. I’ve had a big variety in the same set of gear too....I’m assuming it was the genetics because they grew side by side. My thought on curing is that it often feels more like art than science. Me, personally, I like a slower dry and into glass jars at stem snap. More than one way to skin a cat for sure!!!! Also, I keep hygrometers in the jars to monitor the cure for a couple weeks. Got thirty of them on eBay for cheap. Some read a bit differently but the difference is stable so I just mark with a sharpie the difference.
