    Debated whether I should put this in the March thread, but...at last:

    The aftermath of jarring up 500g of FVF and 250g of St James Flake. I’m finally realizing that I might be nearing the end of my Cellar Stocking Catch-up phase.

    So what size jars did you decide on for the flakes??

    I cut them all in half and stuffed 75g in half-pint jars. Just about fills it perfectly.

    Edit:half pint jars

    I can get a pound of MacBaren flakes into 3 half pint Mason jars. I also cut those flakes in half, as they are rather large.

    It landed and I couldn't resist. Savinelli 673 and some Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture. I also received some Peterson's Perfect Plug. Will I get up at 5AM to try it or will I hold out? Yikes.

    Thanks, amigos! Will check my dwindling inventory of empty jars and get 'canning'..

    Remember, jars can be re-used once empty, but I would by new lids. You can get 12 new lids for about a buck. The rings should be fine.

    That’s a nice shape.
     
  13. Yeap, I cut the flakes in half. The last 250gr of FVF I jarred I got it into two and left enough out for two bowls. If I have them, I do 1 8oz and 2 4 oz but I need to smoke through some open jars to get more of the 4 oz.
    Great looking pipe! I would have a hard time resisting if the weather was nice.

    How do you like the Elizabethan Mike? If you like it there is a whole world of a VaPers out there to explore and cellar:).

    Nice!! Must be very nice to be able to get tobacco from both the US and Europe semi-easily.

    It was quite nice. A neighbour struck up a long conversation so I had to relight a couple of times. At this point I'm just trying some things. Trying to stick to things that are positively reviewed. I really like this pipe though. I understand you need to give a pipe some rest between smoking so I guess I have to buy a few more :yesnod:.

    I've been imagineering where I can put a collection of mason jars.

    Yes, it is good to give a briar pipe a day of rest. Solution- a seven day set. A supplemental solution- Meerschaum. Meers can be smoked full time without issues. I wish I had saved that picture of Baki's everyday Meer.

    On edit: a quick google search yielded results.

    With the new Savinlli I have six . . . one somewhere I can't quite find yet, four Missouri Meerscham corn cobs.

    Had to have an uninterrupted go with the Savinilli with the Elizabethan Mixture again. Actually liking this tobacco a lot. It, to me, has that cherry that I was seeking when I bought the Borkham Riff Cherry. Didn't have to relight but admittedly smoked it a bit too quickly . . . but mellowing out now listening to some Jazz.

    Thinking about the Three Nuns. My dad used to smoke this. Apparently what it is today is not the same as when he smoked it but . . . well a bit of nostalgia.

    One day soon I'm going to have to buy an ashtray.
     
  20. The current rendition of three nuns is still pretty good.
