    Salt And Alcohol Treatment ......

    I am doing a S+A treatment and some alcohol got on the finish. As I was filling the bowl up with the alcohol ever so slowly, it went a little to high up. It didn't go over the rim of the pipe, but did go over the little slanted lower ridge a bit. I can see a little brownish color in with the...

    965 VS Red Rapparee.....

    My rotation includes 965. I like it, smoke it daily and it's going bye-bye ( so I'm told ). Searching for another good Scottish blend led me to Red Rapparee. Is it anything like 965 ? Better...worse...similar ?

    Un - Dedicating A Pipe....

    I like University Flake, so I dedicated a pipe to it. The pipe I chose is good smoker, and the fact that I only smoke UF one to two times a week, I thought I could put the pipe to more and better use in the regular line up and dedicate a less used pipe to UF. I've probably smoked about two tins...

    Recording Tobacco Preparation......

    Well it seems as my tobacco rotation increases I am having trouble remembering what preparation I used. When I had 4 or 5 jars working I remembered the drying time, how much rubbing out was necessary, or if fold and stuff was the way to go. Now that I have more blends in rotation and pick one to...

    Wasting Tobacco...

    It seems recently I've had a few attempts at a fold and stuff that went wrong for one reason or another and had to dump half a bowl out because it was half burnt or whatever. Then a couple bowls that were packed too tight and wouldn't stay lit and the rest half burnt and kinda wet-ish looking...

    Sir Johns Flake Virginia

    With all the Virginia threads lately 'Sir Johns Flake Virginia' is not mentioned nor is it on anyone's short list. It's got good ratings on TR. Could anyone shed some light on the quality... or lack of... on this flake?

    Coins.....

    I'm smoking DNR's this morning. First bowl was rubbed out. Next one was folded. It seemed to me the folded had more flavor and had a better volume of richer smoke...The same pipe was used for both. Just a coin-cidence ?

    Late Delivery on a Cold Night...

    A delivery of 5 tins came in after 8 pm last night and sat outside all night in freezing temps. I noticed it at 8am this morning and brought it in.....Will this cause any ill effects to the tobacco? Edited by jvnshr: Title capitalization (please check Rule #9)

Wondering if this has happened to any of you. The thing is, I don't have a stuffed up nose and I can...
