Quick question. Do you leave the SG in the frozen food dish, or transfer to jar/mylar immediately? Thanks!
Depends how quickly one intends to use it. As a relatively slow smoker (0-3 bowls per week), I would put anything that isn't in circular/cylindrical tins into Ball jars. Even those square/rectangular Capstan/SG/G&H/Peterson/Mac Baren tins are known to lose their seals unexpectedly. Just to be on the safe side...

So I've smoked 4 bowls of this so far. Some were just half now, half later. All out of a bent stem MM Legend, twice rubbed out and twice fold and stuff. Interestingly enough, this review was based on fold and stuff and the 2 following bowls were rubbed out and lacking something. So I repeated the process of the first bowl and voila!

I would recommend jarring or mylar. I use jars for blends in rotation and mylar for long term storage. Heat sealed with an iron of course.

LOL

To be fair, obviously someone selling off their stash and have a friend looking to get back into pipes, so most of that is going to him, I just took about 20 tins that i wanted, CRF and a few other things, he's getting an instant cellar and instant pipe collection including a sweet 1967 Dunhill Canadian that is in amazing shape and crisp stamping which shocked me. He even through in 31 jars of stuff that came out to over 5lbs in that alone lol
Can I be your friend? 😁

Regarding last week's myriad online IPSD sales, it was a no-brainer to go with SP.com. They had most of what I wanted needed, and although P&C's flat 20% off w/no minimum was initially tempting, I've heard more than a couple horror stories, and SP just consistently kicks ass in all aspects of the ordering process. Anyway, I've needed a proper travel bag for a long time, and their 4-pipe satchel was nearly $30 off MSRP when all was said and done. And with only $40 or so to get to free shipping, I'll give you three guesses as to what I did about that, and the first two don't count... :ROFLMAO:

2 oz. Mac Baren Mixture Scottish Blend
2 oz. Sutliff Match Victorian
1x Peterson Flake
1x Stanwell Melange
1x Stanwell Vanilla
