    My moisture meter has three levels red, yellow and green. Depends where you place it as the top will get drier first, but I try and take it down to the red indicator.
    When firing you can also feel with your hand that the outside will feel slightly moist. Another method is to throw some plastic sheeting over the oven to see if moisture condenses on the underside.
    you can hurry the drying and only do it partially probably safely, although once you’ve rendered over it the remaining moisture is harder to remove.

    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
