    What do you use to store your pipe tobacco in and what type of humidifier do you use?

    Glass jars w/ a good rubber type seal . With some of them I'll toss in those little disks ... http://wvsmokeshop.com/tobaccomoistners.aspx ... these work good for me . I also have some tobacco jars w/ their own humidifier gizmo . I've got one jar thats seals so well and has a huge humidifier that it nukes a dry blend in two days . I'll mix it up after the first day and see where it's at . I'd gotten some Wessex Burley that was dry and put it in there and forgot about for 4 days .. ooops .... had to let it dry a bit :)

    I've used those disks in the past myself. They always tended to stick to the tobacco when put them in with the tobacco itself. I found these 'Humidi Pak's'. they seem to do the job when put in just about any container without sticking to the tobacco. I also like that they are waterless.

    Due to a past disaster that destroyed a whole box of Ashton cigars, I never use the gel type humidifiers. :thdn:
