    Kilning Before Fermenting

    I've grown some Perique (varietal) to turn into Perique (processed). Is there any benefit to kilning this or just start fermenting it when its colour cured?

    Just begin after color-curing. You can even frogleg leaf that has mostly color-cured, but the stems are still green. I've made Perique from kilned leaf, and I don't think it makes a difference.
