• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

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.
