Westminister must have a lot of hype in it because I find it to be delicious.
I have used boveda packs in the past. I won a pile of tins from Jim in the Sue auction one year, and he threw in an open tin if ridiculously old Nightcap that was pretty crispy. I used the small 69% pack, and it took two refreshes until it got to a smokable condition.Do you think perhaps using a boveda pack would work at all?
Well that was the only tin in my cellar of that type. Needless to say, I have checked the entire cellar.That's the trouble with rust specs. Knowing if it's just a tiny surface blemish, or signs of real trouble. Unfortunately, attemping to scour then off, promotes corrosion...
Not lost any pipe tobacco yet, but lost a few tins of snuff, which corroded from the inside out, and which don't have the paper separation that pipe tobacco does.
I think it would be too high of an RH pipe tobacco should be anywhere from 12 to 20 RH depending on the blend.Do you think perhaps using a boveda pack would work at all?
Thanks. I think it’s going to work. I jarred it up after about three hours. I will test it next weekend.Sorry Bill, I hope you can salvage it. FWIW my method for re-hydration is spread the baccy as thinly as I can on paper plates and cover with two layers of paper towels. Spray distilled water on the towels with a clean spay bottle until the paper towels are moist. stir baccy and re-spray as they dry out. I have had good results from this method. Good luck.
In my days of RYO cigarettes, I'd stuck a small wedge of potato in there. Does the same thing as apples, but instead of imparting an apple flavor, it's much much more neutral. It's still a very good trick.I use dehydrated fruits to rehydrate herb. Apple wedges work nicely, dried in a dehydrator to a pliable leather consistency.
