    Well here in Connecticut we were hit pretty hard by the snow storm and power was out for a few days. I had about 100 new sticks on hand so when the power came back on I packaged them up, put them In the fridge for a few hours then moved them to the freezer once it was running cold enough (-8c)...

    I read the science of freezing thread and it definitely seems like the best policy is to freeze new cigars before they ever enter the humidor, but have any of you ever had any mishaps from freezing your new sticks? I'm just a little nervous that I would follow the instructions exactly and...

    I have never frozen my sticks before, mainly because I didn't have sticks I felt were worth taking the time to do so. Now over the last year, no doubt because of this site, I have gotten some sticks I might cry over if the beetles got to them. So in about 12, 1 gallon bags, then double bagged...

    I've been searching old threads on the forums after reading a few from those who've been victims of beetles, but in most cases it seemed like it was a humid/warm environment and often a coolidor. I haven't had a humidor with any significant number of sticks prior to about two weeks ago when I...

    I have a box of GH vintage 2002 I had ordered. If the box is sealed and shrink wrapped or cello wrapped can I toss it right into the fridge then freezer? Do I still need to baggie it up and get allthe air out?

    So i have herd of freezing cigars alot here on puff but am a bit confused on evrything that that does. so here are my questions Does freezing a cigar kill all living bugs or whatever might be living in a cigar? After you freeze a cigar does it matter if you keep it above 70 degrees? Does...

    I have ~50 cigars coming in the mail from various vendors and I never considered freezing until I read about it here and my apartments temps are typically higher than ideal... Around 75-80 sometimes. I won't smoke through my cigars quick enough to merit not freezing them but I'm curious about a...

    I've reread the freezing threads. But I am wondering.. do people think that freezing double bagged cigars *in* box for 5 days in a residential freezer at max setting would be a reasonable guarantee of killing beetles? Thanks in advance :-)

    if its too moist will the water in it expand to the point of breaking the wrapper?

    I got 75 cigars in today from the devils site and not enough room in my humidor, and my new humidor isn't even in yet. I put the cigars in freezer bags and put in my chest freezer. I know that you usually do three days for the cigars but since I dont have enough room for all is it ok for some...

    My humis often stay above 75 degrees for long periods in the summer. I guess I've been lucky so far, but I'm now accumulating some pricier sticks, and my inventory is growing, so I'm going to start freezing much of what I've already got, and all incoming stock. I've read several threads on...

    So I undestand the whole ordeal with freezing cigars. I have been doing so for about a year now. Everytime I receive a new cigar, I usually lock it tight within a humidified travel cigar ziplock. I put it in my refrigerator for a day then in my fridge for 2 days then back in the fridge then...

    OK, I understand the desire to freeze your sticks to protect against the evil within. But there is some concern as to the change in taste. (I know there is a debate there, but that is not what I’m discussing here.) To avoid this, what I have been doing is taking new arrivals and quarantining...
  16. General Cigar Discussion
    I know that there are a lot of threads on beetle and freezing, but I couldn't find any answers to the question I have. The question is: should one be concerned about freezing if the sticks come in a cello wrapper or the box is new, sealed and un-opened? Can beetles get into a stick that's in...

    I just picked up 3 sticks from the mid 80s - should I freeze these as I have the rest of my cigars or do you guys think it has been long enough that it is unnecessary?
  18. General Cigar Discussion
    I am starting the process of freezing all my cigars. I have recently (about a month ago) frozen a bunch of smokes, but have since mingles all of them with my non-frozen smokes. Should I re-freeze these smokes?
  19. General Cigar Discussion
    Ive been wondering if I should double ziplock my sticks before I send them to the freezer?

    I know some of you must be shaking your heads at this....but....I received 15 singles and a cohiba siglo II 5 pack(in the box) the other day and I inspected them for authenticity and for any signs of beetles. I did not see anything in the 15 singels that would make me think there were any...
