    Hey all,
    I have two questions here... Number one is how does everyone keep up with whats in their cellar? Is there a list or something? And number two is how do you measure out how much you have? I recently aquired a good bit of toby and I want to write down how many grams or ounces I have but I dont have a scale.
    Thanks in advance again,
    Jomo

    Since I don't have a lot of tobacco, I just pull it out and organize by weight in 1 lb increments. For those tobys in mason jars, I weigh an empty jar with my kitchen scale (which I bought for brewing) and deduct that weight from the jars with toby in them to get a reasonable estimate. If I had the cellar that some of these guys do, I would consider a list (hand written journal or pc spreadsheet). There's also online cellars such as: THIS ONE which are kinda cool for browsing other people's caches--I started one, but it was a pain in the arse to keep updated, so I gave up on it. I also notice the "cellar" on this forum, but I haven't tried it. "Inventory" is something I do once or twice a year--I'd rather not obsess over it.

    Spreadsheets and databases are really handy for keeping track. If you have an iOS device, there's cellaring software available for it. Weight-wise, a general rule of thumb is that a quart jar holds 1/2lb. of non-flake tobacco, and 1lb. of flake.
