Storing pipe tobacco

I have a bunch of tobacco samples in ziplock bags. I put all of them in a pelican case with some cigar boxes and some HF 65 beads. Is that okay or should I try to do something else? Thanks Doug

Take them out now!

Pipe tobacco aren't cigars, and they really don't like high humidity at all.

11%-18% for pipe bacco. Just use some ball canning jars and you will be sitting fine. But get that pipe weed out of that high humidity environment ASAP please!

Re: Storing pipe tobacco

Thanks for the quick response the tobacco is out. I have been smoking a pipe for 3 days so I have a lot to learn. I started reading the post you mentioned, guess I better finish it.

It's a pretty awesome thread. I think at some point or another it covers just about everything from storage to drying to packing techniques. I learned a lot in there!

I should add that there's a strong divide within the pipe community over the matter of humidification. Most of the guys here on Puff seem to favor the mason jar, tins or baggies with no added humidification (except light spraying with distilled water when too parched), as I do too. The article recommends using pipe tobacco humidifiers, but that might be something that gives more benefit to aromatics (some toppings may be volatile), as the Carey shop appears to favor aros over non-aros and English blends.

Re: Storing pipe tobacco

Plus Ball jars looking freaking awesome!


Everything I say should be read in a sarcastic manner first. If the sarcasm makes no sense, read it as if I'm drunk.

Re: Storing pipe tobacco

I think I will store my jars in the unfinished basement. Temps stay fairly constant around the upper 50s all year long. If it gets too damp, there is a dehumidifier. Plus the canning room has no windows, so no worry about sunlight. Not exactly the best man cave, but I can listen to my ipad and sip on my pipe.
