So I just ordered a pound of Sleepy Hollow, and I am debating on whether I should store it in one big jar and have it really aesthetically pleasing in my smoking room, or if I should store it in separate 16 oz jars. Any thoughts?
I usually start with a large jar, then move to a medium jar, then a smaller jar, then finally a half-pint.
Usually, however, I simply break up the pounds into 4-8 (depending on the cut) half pint mason jars and cellar them so that I have no more than ~2oz open at any time of a single blend.
Question: Have any of you tossed the paper, for whatever reason, and stored the tobacco in the tin ONLY? If so, what were your results? In other words, did you notice any difference?
@RockyMountainBriar may be on to something with the picking up a metallic taste idea. Never tried it, but I will on my next short trip...
I have had some tobacco tins that had corrosion in them when they were freshly opened. I think they were either C&D or G.L.Pease? Luckily they had the parchment paper lining protecting the tobacco.
Thank you. Good idea
Although most of us use mason type jars, I would assume many of us also have the type of jar pictured below.
With this jar type, I find that moisture starts to noticeably leave after a few months. So what to do?
Here's what I did. I took some of my wife's velcro discs from her craft room (about 3/4" diameter), peeled and stuck one side to the center of the lid, and the other one I stuck to a humidor moisture disc. Cheap when buy a lot on Ebay
Now about every 3-4 months, I soak the disc in distilled water for a couple of hours, then stick it back on the lid.
Good for another 3-4 months.
