Carmel's philosophy is "Don't grow the most. Grow the most desired." The Carmel Crew uses this philosophy as a guiding light to every decision they make. They are constantly striving to maintain the *highest* possible standards while pushing the culture forward with rare genetics. Hang dried, hand trimmed and perfectly cured for 14 days in food grade barrels that are burped daily. But wait, there's more! They also ensure their product is perfectly spongy, targeting a final moisture content of 11-14%.
