    I'm not sure what you want, brother. Glass mason jars are pretty much what we all use for short and long term storage. That's it, the end. No one is hiding anything from you, that's really what we *ALL* use! From us lowly nobodies, to the great Gregg Pease. There just isn't anything else out there as effective, readily available, and economical.

    Is there some reason you don't want to use glass mason jars? If so, why not just tell us. We'll discuss it.

    Do you have something else in mind? Tell us, maybe we'll learn something from you. Or at least discuss it.

    Or do you just not believe us? If you don't trust our judgement, why ask in the first place?

    Curious, are you asking not only about storage but other pipe tricks, ideas and suggestions. Pipe tobacco storage is easy compared to cigars, but there is a learning curve to smoking pipes, and a lot of tricks to aid in your enjoyment, but without knowing specifically what you're looking for there's no way to help. Are you looking for packing info, pipe info, tobacco info, lighting info, smoking info, breaking-in info, cellaring info, etc.... The members here are more than willing to help, but we just need specifics, and once we have that you will get tons of tricks, tips, ideas and suggestions, probably so much that your head will spin more than if you had just smoked a bowl of tambolaka.

    I guess I'll break from tradition and say I don't use mason jars.

    I use Ball jars!

    Tony, thank you for your kind words. It means a lot coming from such a respected member of this community as yourself. But, I am very much still a newbie to pipes, particularly compared to many of the other gentlemen here. I've read a lot, and learned a LOT in my time here, but I've still got a lot left to learn!

    Sorry about that we were just having a little fun, no offense intended.

    The problem with innovative storage ideas is that a lot of things have been tried; vacuum sealing, tupperware, etc. Some have even been partially to completely successful. However they all pale in comparison to the pure simplicity of the canning jar. It's cheap, readily available, almost idiot proof, and gives the tobacco a ridiculous shelf life.

    The only down side is if you accidentally break one open. No tobacco is worth inhaling glass dust.

    There seems to be many things to learn about pipe smoking,but I started this thread "How do your keep pipe tobaccos fresh economically?' hoping to learn how to store tobaccos and keep'em fresh(I just want to mention BESIDES mason jars or canning jars methods only if there are more effective or more economical storing tobacco methods that I am not aware of) from other members here.Nothing more,nothing less

    He doesn't like the simplicity of Ball jars with rubber lid seals, I guess. He want something more complex.

    First, build a metal walk-in cabinet to store your tobaccos in ... Hook it up to it's own HVAC system for precise temperature control.

    Then get an in-duct humidification system for precise control of RH.

    Store your tobacco in there, doesn't really matter what you use for containers.

    I keep a pride of hungry Servals in the back yard. Anytime I see a tobacco drying, I just let them eat some of my 'baccy, and out pops nice little kitty fermented and most importantly, remoistened pipe tobacco!

    Goes well with the coffee.

    Its still better than the dung beetle setup I was using last year.

    Is there much to worry about regarding MOLD? I notice with pipes the tobacco run very moist/wet. The coolest part of my house temp wise is around 80deg F. I know that's not optimal but thats the best I can do.

    From what I read with cigars, keeping the RH below 70% prevents mold growth but what about with tobacco thats wet?

    I haven't ran into issues with mold, but I make it a point to start with a clean jar ahead of time to reduce the chances of errant spores lurking about.
