    Hi everyone,

    What would be the long term effects of jared tobacco in lets say a beer fridge in the basement?

    I think it might interfere with the aging process, I know freezing it is not a good idea.

    Also, if not 100% airtight it would dry the tobacco. Fridges are great for storing tea, not so much foe baccy.

    I hadn't looked at it that way before, but it is very true!

    Back when I was smoking more regularly I always kept my tobacco in the fridge in an airtight jar, heard it from my tobacconist. I don't know if it's recommended or not but I had no problem with it, I'm a slow smoker and still in the time it took me to finish my batch it had no problems with drying out. Though, I can imagine that if your container is not airtight you might run into problems.

    I've always kept my cigarettes (Marlboro-red/box ) in the freezer when I bought them by the carton. But they never stayed in very long. My pipe tobacco I keep in an old chest of drawers in the basement, cool & dry.

    Today's frost-free refrigerators work by removing moisture from the air inside the fridge. If there's any air movement in the container, moisture will get sucked out of the leaf. Also, when the jar is taken out, you might have condensation inside the jar- not good.

    Keep the beer in the fridge and the baccy in a cellar closet in a mason jar.
