Hey guys i was just wondering how long i can keep tobacco in a twist off tin once its been open?

Also what about tins that don't twist off (boswell,sutliff,c&d)

Should these be jarred right away?

Depends on how fast you go through a tin. At the rate I go, I jar it up as soon as its opened.

I would hazard a guess that it would stay fresh enough to smoke for 6 months.

I think it depends on where you live. I live in the middle of a high desert, and I notice that tobacco in a open tin begins to dry out after just a handful of days.

It would also depend on how dry you like your tobacco
As you can see Aro there are no easy answers when it comes to pipe smoking :)

It also depends on the cut of the tobacco. I live in Colorado Springs (6,500ft) where it’s pretty dry, and the last tin of Dunhill Early Morning Pipe I bought was getting crispy in its screw top tin after only a couple weeks after opening. But it’s a fine shag cut. I can usually get a month out of a tin before it gets crumbly dry, but I usually smoke thicker cuts also.
