Storing Pipe Tobacco

I recently acquired a few baggies of pipe tobacco to bring back to college with me. Should they be ok to spend a few weeks in ziplock bags with the air pressed out, or is there a different way I need to store them? Thanks.

Go to Target..... cooking section..... Canning jars fit 50-100g depending on the tobacco...

Re: Storing Pipe Tobacco

FWIW I've stored a few ounces of bulk blends in plastic ziplocks and I haven't experienced any ill effects. However I'd try to move anything over an ounce or 2 into jars once you get to school.

The two eleven mark, based on the medival symbol for steel, appears only on Steel ReserveĀ® high gravity lager. We use nearly twice the ingredients of many normal lagers & brew for over twice as long as many quality beers.

Re: Storing Pipe Tobacco

Like JPH said.

But a more reasonable short-term unbreakable storage would be Ziplock TWISTLock canisters. I have had tobac in some of these for over 6 months now and they are doing fine.

Reserved for future use....

Re: Storing Pipe Tobacco

Ball makes 8 ounce canning/mason jars which are square/cubicle and hold 2 ounces of bulk tobacco nicely. They're inexpensive, and Target has them in four packs.

Re: Storing Pipe Tobacco

I have quite a few pouches that have only an ounce or two in them, that I store all together in a large bail-type cannister. Any air-tight jar should work well with multiple baggies. I haven't noticed any problems storing different blends this way. Larger quantites of 'baccy that isn't likely to be smoked for awhile warrants mason jars.................p

Remember there's a big difference between kneeling down and bending over.

Re: Storing Pipe Tobacco

Canning jars work best IMO.

Re: Storing Pipe Tobacco

I have stored tobacco in the ziplock bag from the B&M for several weeks and it has been fine. For longer term storage I use mason jars.
