    Germain’s Tin Dating

    Not much info out there that I could find. I recently popped open a tin of Best Brown that I know was around 20 years old. There were two codes on the tin ... one ended with "01" and one with "02". I figure, if either one is right, it's the last two number that tell the year. THIS IS ALL JUST...

    Chilllucky Crop 2019

    I'd treat it just like the Burley … stalk cut / air-cured. For both, after they are color cured and air-dried, 4-6 weeks in a kiln does wonders. If you need any info on building the flue-curing / kilning contraption let me know.

    Best Drink of Water

    Same here … Glacier National Park in the late Spring. I'm also lucky to have an artesian well on my property. It's hard water that has filtered through Limestone but tastes clean and pure every time right from the tap. Slightly more rare here in Arizona.

    Which Pipe Do You Own That People Will Remember You By?

    I'm going to guess they will remember the Cobs most.

    Nice looking, not too expensive dark pipes.

    At they have a "pipe locator" which you can use to narrow your search. At that price range, I'd look at the offerings from Savinelli/Rossi, Stanwell and Chacom too.
