Reply to "Extremely low basement humidity"

About 25% of my wine will be aged for 5-20 years. Not a walk-out basement. I've been monitoring the temperature in the basement for the past month or so and it is staying right at 57 degrees. It may creep up to 60-62 in the summer months is my guess though. I think I will start out by just framing in a small area and wrapping it in a vapor barrier and then adding buckets of water in there to achieve the 50-65% humidity I would need. Did you have a cellar in Colorado that you were able to keep in 50-70% humidity and if so did you only use buckets of water on the ground or did you have a cooling unit that also regulated humidity? Thanks!
