Anyone else having problems keeping it lit? Opened a new tin yesterday and can't seem to keep the bowl lit.

It is a hard tobacco to keep lit from my experience as well. I suggest letting it sit out for a bit to dry.
If I have a wet tobacco, but I know I want to smoke a bowl of said wet tobacco I'll pack the bowl and have it ready for later that night or the following day and it helps it dry out, but not to much. I do that a lot with my Mississippi River tobacco.

Just for future reference, nearly all Gawith blends come out of the tin wetter than a cucumber in a woman's prison.

I really like 1792 but it is a pain to keep lit. I usually load the pipe one night and smoke it the next night. Still moist.

I struggled with SG blends when starting out with them as well, cube

cut that flake up and give a good 24-48hrs of dry time depending

on temp/humidity....I find that borderline "crunchy" smokes the best

and gives me a cloud-9 smoke...stay with it, the trouble is well worth

the reward when it comes to SG blends ;-)
