    I can't seem to get the humidity down to the 65% the beads are set up for. I have checked my digital hygrometer using the Boveda's 75.5% Calibration Kit several times and each time the hygrometer reads 75%. I have also placed more than 1/3 lb of a beads in a closed plastic container with the...

  4. General Pipe Forum
    Hi, I have bought several pipes over the years and never quite got it right. I think it may have to do with perhaps the way I am packing the pipe? Too loose, too tight? I really enjoy it when you can take long, slow draws and the flavor is very pleasant but I find I end up puff, puffing away...

    I have been fortunate to smoke an Opus X yesterday and an anejo today(Xmas present from wife). I thought the Opus X had a very nice hint of sweet when smoking that was very nice and the anejo seems to be more on the spicy(pepper) side. Am I correct in what is am tasting?

    I bought a Savoy digital hydrometer/thermometer. I did the salt test and found it's off by 10 to 12 on the humidity scale. Anyone know how to adjust one of these? I thought my humi was not holding humidity, had me worried.

    Hi All, At the risk of Cigar b/sotleaf's running me out of the site on a dogrocket, I just need to say the following....have a little mercy on this old English teacher! Common misuses....THERE ARE is not THERE or THEIR. You could use THEY'RE! THERE ARE tells HOW MANY....As in, "There...

    I was just smoking a cigar, a JR's cuban Counterfeit (I think. I was given the cigar and I'm not positive. It's someone's knock-off.) anyhow, the cigar burned rather crooked. Is there a way to correct this? I believe I lit the cigar properly, using a 30 second charring light and then...

    Hello all. I know this topic has come up before, but I was unable to find the thread... Can anyone give me some guidance as to the proper amount of beads I should be using to maintain constant RH in my new Vinotemp? I seem to remember a few folks using a pound and a half... does that sound...

    #2 (Jordan #2, aka JE3146) was up to something, and I knew he was being too coy when chatting with me in ClubStogie chat. He was discussing bombing people and which is better, posting the tracking numbers before sending it out or sending them out blind and waiting for the carnage ensue. I said...

  15. Cigar Questions
    I have heard a lot of different people saying to turn a cigar as you smoke it (ie/ turn if b4 each puff) and to lay it down different ways to correct a burn problem. So, my question is this, how do you lay it down to correct the burn problem? Slow burn side down? Up? Thanks!!
  16. General Pipe Forum
    You can go into most cigar shops, buy a cigar and step outside and smoke it. Why don't they sell pipe tobacco at a smokable 40% or lower RH? Does it age better when wet?
