Hey all, I'm on my 3rd tin of JKnife Plug recently and I noticed about half way thru the plug a little spot of growth. It's a creamy, pearl white of velvety soft mycelium growth growing on the side of the block. It's about the size of a small coffee bean. Now granted I haven't been smoking very long (6mos) since I started smoking a pipe again, and I've gone thru only a few pounds thus far. Outside of this I smoked part-time for a couple years some six years ago. So, I obviously haven't gone thru as much tobacco as some of y'all which is why I'm asking if it is par for the course to find mold colonizing on tinned tobacco? All things being equal, is this a common, not so common event? In any case, I simply sliced off a few millimeters of said plug where the mold was growing and problem solved. I know in the past I've encountered older tins, from Dunhill especially, where sugar had crystallized on the surface in spots, but this was definitely a growing mass of mycelium. Outside of maybe a half pound of tobacco that is jarred for aging, everthing else is in the tin whence it came. Some seeing more daylight than others. So I'm curious as to what others think about mold growth on tinned pipe tobacco.
