    Run the Oasis at 75+ for a couple of weeks.  Calibrate hygrometer and add cigars.  you are over thinking this.  A happy humidor is a full humidor.

    Forgot to mention, you should use boveda packs, KL, or beads throughout the unit as well for further the stabilization, especially at the top.

    Give it time. That thing is large and dry out of the box. I let my cabinet run for 2 weeks before I started. The good thing is the active hunidification with the Oasis. You can add sticks and be ok. 

    Life is too short to smoke bad cigars!!!
