Shew…that’s a can of worms haha. Everyone has their preferred moisture levels for tobacco and that includes types. I personally (note I say personally, others might disagree) find it better to have the aromatics on the dryer side. Less bite, but then it depends on whether you are using a filter and what blend it is and and and and….try both, put an equal amount on a small plate and smoke one immediately and let the other plate dry for an hour and then try it and see what you prefer.Are there any recommended moisture levels of different types of pipe tobacco?
Probably not but just asking.
It's pretty easy: Dry a bit if needed, keep contamination away, load fully (though some will say leave some air at the top), screw on the top, place in cool (at least not hot) dark closest, shelf, drawer.I have hygrometers in my hudors ( 2 cabinets and one tupperdore) and I store my CC & NC aprox 68-70F and 62-66RH.
But I not sure how to store pipe tobacco mason jars.
Yes dryer can always be rehydrated using the various methods mentioned. But any mold means the entire lot must be tossed out.Does it matter if the tobacco in the mason jar is little bit dryer and does not need that much drying before smoking?
I mean dryer than straight after opening the tin.
I got mold in one jar that had SG BBF and it was in 65% humidity.
Thats why I would rather keep my tobacco dryer than too moist.
but at what temperature?
is relative to whatever the temperature is
