Since there are at least 2 noob pipe smokers on here now, @Glassman, thanks to @Bostoneo, lets talk about pipe baccy and storage.
I would assume not with my cigars for cross flavoring. How do you guys store the shit?

Mason jars if you have a lot of one blend. Samples just store them air tight in the baggie. You don’t need to constantly humidify like cigars.

So another newb pipe tobacco storage question. I move all my blends I bought that were just bagged to jars. For unopened Tins, are they good to just store in the tins?

I use small Bell jars for mine, can fit about 2 Oz in one. Perfect size for what I have. If I haven't opened the tin I just leave it in there, they are sealed.

I’ve got a variety of quart, pint and jelly jars at the moment and I’m sure those will work well. Just wasn’t sure about the tins and if I needed to keep them in a Tupperware or such. It’s dry here in western colorado

Once I open a tin, I pretty much transfer the contents to a small mason jar immediately.
I have about twenty open tins at a time in my rotation so some get smoked a lot more frequently than others.

Good question. I do not have any mason jars, i dont plan to get any and i wouldnt have anywhere to put them. As of a few weeks ago, i opened up my ammo can that ive been storing all the pipe backy in, some of it is very dry, others are just as moist as ive gotten them. They are all in pouches and bags so i figured a buffer wouldnt hurt. I stuck in 2 small boveda 69% in there. Getting use to setting out to dry, id rather the stuff stay fresh until used instead of drying and risking flavor loss? Am i ok ya think? Just smoked a nowl of ps turkish and it lit and stayed lit the entire bowl, so im going to just keep as is for now. A lower rh pack would be great but im not itching to buy one, maybe when my humidors need a pack change.....
