    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?

    Keep calm...smoke a pipe.

    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.

    Indeed. And if you are in Alabama in the Summer, and leave a tin open outside for a bit, it will become unsmokable.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    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.
