    My Attempts at Homemade Kretek-Like Tobacco for Pipe (With Recipe)

    Forgot to mention that my girflriend has asthma and was the main reason for me to quit cigarettes for good and come back to the pipe forum (which I smoke way less compulsively). My love for her is making me do good things.

    My Attempts at Homemade Kretek-Like Tobacco for Pipe (With Recipe)

    EDIT: Fixed Capitalization in Title (See Rule 9) - Bob OK, so I was basically out of the pipe smoking world for around 1 year. And the one thing which made me stop paying attention to pipesmoking was... Kretek. If you're not familiar with the word, they are those Indonesian clove cigarettes...

    My New Pipe has Arrived - And I'm in Love

    What I refer to is the Armellini Suprema which I talked about 2 months ago. I took a pause in pipesmoking because my good-tasting tobaccos ended. I ordered this pipe at March 10, and it only arrived a couple of days ago (April 23). Some days of anxious expectations... You know, the customhouses...

    Rotten Tobacco? White Layer Growing Over Rope After 3 Weeks (Pic)

    Thanks guys! It seemed something nasty indeed. At least this other rope seems to be mould-free and is smelling a lot better! Seems to be "aging" (if you can call this aging) well. I wonder what happened to make the other one full of mould, while "saving" this one which was stored at the same...

    Rotten Tobacco? White Layer Growing Over Rope After 3 Weeks (Pic)

    I picked up this piece of rope tobacco after 3 weeks "cellaring" it in a dark place (though not vacuum-sealed), and look at what happened... What could this be?

    Cosmic Yes, funny stuff. :lol: I guess "The grass is always greener on the other side”, isn't it?

    Tin vs Jar

    Each jar is $5.00-7.50 around here, so, even if it's best to jar them, I can't afford it... Unfortunately. I store pouch/rope/bulk tobacco in Ziplock plastic containers.

    Dried Tobacco Gone Bad

    Yes... I always dried it a lot, I mean, all of them. I guess I'll try them straight from the tin/pouch before thinking about drying, from now on. If it's too moist, I'll dry the tobacco, but not so much.

    Where Do You Source Your Dunhill?

    I never tried Dunhill but it seems to be available everywhere I look until now.

    Which Smokes Make You Feel Manly?

    None. I don't feel manly about smoking pipes. That's why I bought this "not-manly" pipe, which is, by my standards, the most beautiful ever made. :lol:

    Dried Tobacco Gone Bad

    I always had good results drying my tobacco. But recently, when drying Viprati, the taste became kind of mediocre in my opinion. And it's a pretty good tobacco when fresh out of the tin. Do you guys think that some tobaccos don't benefit from drying?

    Brand New Armellini Suprema With Sillver Ring $60 on EBay

    Well, I've just scored it for $59.99. I hope it's as beautiful as in the pictures and that it smokes well. Can't wait for it to arrive. It was a little above my budget, but I had never seen such a beautiful pipe in my life, so I had no choice but to buy it. If such an insanely beautiful pipe...

    Brand New Armellini Suprema With Sillver Ring $60 on EBay

    There are several Suprema models with silver rings, all starting at $60. Should I place a bet on all of them, even if I only want to take one? Edit.: It seems that no one wants those pipes because of the "androgynous" look, so he lowered some to $55.
