How do you Geeks with existing Wine-a-dors humidify your stock?

There has been some discussion lately about this and I have a 32 bottle Wine cooler on its way.

Let me know any thoughts/tips you can!  Thanks!

I think we are going to have the absolute same setup Brian! I went with that hydra as well, but bought 2 of the extra fans to go in mine to move air.

Kitty Litter works ok but you need a lot more of it. I spent more and bought beads. I've had them in use now for 7 or 8 years now and they still work great. The kitty litter I had disintegrated over a year or 2 and needed to be replaced, but it is much cheaper. I just found the beads very low maintenance.

I don't have a Winador so I won't vote, but my suggestion would be going a oasis or hydra with some beads to stabilize RH swings when opening and closing.

My wine-a-dor is only 2.5 cubic feet so passive humidification is plenty. It really is semi-passive anyways with the fans moving air around .

They have a really tight seal so maintaining them is a breeze.

I think I might use some kitty litter in mine, or some of the gel stuff to help regulate it better. I am definitely going to have some sort of catch tray for the water that condenses off of the piece that runs back into the hydra.

I've had two Wineadors on kitty litter for several years now. I spritz them with DW a couple of times a year and that's it. I keep one at about 68% RH and the other around 65. Zero issues with KL here.

I'm not $hitting on your poll, just wanted to add a data point that in some parts of the country, adding moisture is not the prevalent issue with a "wineador".

I would think that being in south Louisiana, he might be talking about having to get rid of some humidity in one?

Emerson got it right.

The cabinet I built has a hermetic seal on the door, just like a wineador does. I never have to add water to the cabinet, I have to remove water. Due to living in south Louisiana: it's humid here, all the time.

I use the setup pictured below for de-humidification. I freeze water in the Folgers container, and place it in a small pie plate. I put this device on the top shelf of my cabinet, which has a continuously running circulation fan. The excess moisture condenses on the sides of the Folgers container, runs down into the pie pan, and I remove it. Re-iterate until I get the %RH reduction required.

And I pull a data set once per month, to determine if I need to de-humidify. I use a Lascar data logger: http://www.lascarelectronics.com/temperaturedatalogger.php?datalogg...
