PostSubject: Question about STORAGE   Mon Dec 26, 2011 2:17 pm

I have an Edgestar 28 Btl fridge that I store my cigars in.

It is rock steady at 65/65.

This is perfect for my ISOM cigars.

Will this work well for pipe tobacco, too?

Thanks,

Jack

Pipe tobacco is best kept in the tins they come in, or if bulk, stored in glass jars. Excessive moisture will promote the growth of mold.

With pipe tobacco, the only real no-no is to let sealed tins get too hot. So try to keep your tins at room temperature, whatever that is for you. In the summer, you may want to keep everything in your basement.

I'm not sure what a good humidity for pipe tobacco is! Everyone has their own opinion. Regardless, as tiltjlp stated, you want to keep the tobacco sealed in tins or jars. As you gain experience, you will find that pipe tobacco has incredible resilience. I have had an open tin in my car for months now. The tobacco has endured whatever climate the car has thrown at it and still burns and tastes fine. Usually, if it dries a bit, just flick a few drops of water into the tin and put the lid back on. If it seems to wet, I leave it in the pipe for a few hours before lighting. It's really touchy-feely!

So what we're getting at is, you don't have to worry about the environment as you would a cigar.

Sorry about misplacement of question. I am just finding my way around and it seemed like the logical place to put this type of question.

Apologies.

This place and the hobby seems, at least to me, an enigma wrapped in a riddle AND I have been reading my ass off. affraid

Well, enjoy the riddles and rabbit holes, there's plenty of 'em here. Smile

Also, tins can rust if kept too moist, especially when open. Lloyd (my pipe mentor) used to get Prince Albert all the time, and he kept his in the refrigerator, which had a pretty moist atmosphere...rusty cans, rusty cans. *shrug*

Most "cellars" I've seen are modest shelves of some kind, free from excessive heat, moisture, dryness or cold.
