Reply to "Extremely low basement humidity"

@JoshDrinksPort, Thanks for the very thoughtful reply. You mentioned that you have a DIY cooling unit, can you please elaborate on what it is? I have a 7'x11' framed in area that I sealed with a plastic vapor barrier and simply added a few trays of water in there and I've achieved a constant humidity of 63%, so I'm set with the humidity concern now. The temperature however has risen from the 57 degrees that it maintained all winter to now being at 64 degrees. I think I may be just fine with that temp considering that it's not having wild fluctuations regularly which would cause the air inside of the bottles to be sucked in and out. Since it's a gradual change in temp from 57 to 64 over a matter of 2-3 months and then likewise back to 57 from 64 in the fall, I think I'm fine but it would be nice to have a constant temperature which your DIY rig may help me to achieve. Thanks!
