    I was just jarring a couple of bulk purchases this afternoon, and was just wondering what most of you can fit into each size.

    I always use wide mouth jars. 50g tins go into short 8 oz. jars, 100g to 4 oz in wide mouth pints.

    Today I was putting up some larger quantity, and after easily putting 24 oz of LTF into a wide mouth quart, thought I was never going to cram a pound of Dan DaVinci into the same type jar. (I finally made it happen)

    What quantities do you usually get into what size jars?

    I get 50g tins into 1/2 pint jars and 100g in pints. I get wide mouths as well.

    100 g in pints and half pound to a quart for me. I don't want to damage the leaf, and I want to leave a little air in the jar to it will age.

    When I bulk the pound ribbon or similar cuts I use the 3 step method like when packing the pipe. It seems to have worked for me. If it's the smaller tins, I just use what jars I have that will fit the tobacco - most of the time the jars would take more when I use the 50g or 100g tins.

    1:4 for loose cut/ribbon

    1:2 for flake/coins/plug & twist.

    You can press the leaf in the jar a bit if you wish....look at how packed solid some tinned leaf comes.
