    Well a recent post scared me into freezing. My 50 count humidor is full and has been holding 65% with the help of KL for a solid month. Just such a beautiful sight to finally see it full and I just didn't want a beetle to ruin it all. These are my cigars before and after the vacuum seal...

    The new salesman had just completed his training and was anxious to put his skills to work. He took his Hoover vacuum cleaner to the front door of a house and rang the bell. A rather unpleasant woman answered. Before she could say anything he threw a pile of cow patties in the door behind her...

    I'm in the process of building my pipe tobacco cellar up, here it is Jay29's Online Tobacco Cellar, with a just ordered 8 ounces of Kajun Kake on the way. Would any of you recommend opening the vacuum sealed tins up to put in mason jars for aging? If so, do you seal using the hot water water...

    Came across these, was wondering what folks opinions are on vacuum sealed vs. using something like a ball jar. Oxo Good Grips POP Rectangle 1/2-Quart Storage Container: Kitchen & Dining If you've got the time, link what you personally use. Unfortunately that's the smallest they...

    Has anyone tried these for tobacco? I have a few bags of sealed Penzance in the stock Esoterica bag. I was thinking of placing that sealed bag in these and sealing it. What do you think?

    I ordered a Black Friday special that arrived today, got a CAO sampler in a nice cedar box and a new ash tray :rockon:. Since this was the first box that I've had I just figured (after reading several post on freezing) that I would vacuum seal the box and toss it in the freezer. Just as the...

    This caught my attention. Vendor pushes what looks like little more than the 'salt test' in a packet form (72% rh) and offer vacuum sealing. Now, 72% humidity is way higher than what my Habanos like to rest at. That sounds like it would promote mold. Does anybody suggest going with it or...

    I was wondering if anyone has ever tried aging tobacco or just storing it in vacuum bags. The plastic bags for the machines are thicker than zip locks so dont allow air or water to go in or out. Could you age tobacco like that?

    I noticed some sources provide the option to vacuum pack the forbiddens for their journey. Good idea? bad idea? or any advantages of choosing this option?
  10. General Pipe Forum
    I was curious, and unlike the feline that met its untimely end due to it, I attempted to disassemble an Esoterica foil baggie. The other discussion(s) about storage media had me thinking about this. Will such a bag really work for aging? Anecdotal accounts suggest so, and a post that I read...

    IS there a way to do it yourself? I know how to seal a mason jar, but do you need a special machine for tins?

    I smoke at night on my rear screened in porch which has a brick floor. Sometimes ash drops on the floor? Anything recommended I can keep on hand to vacuum up the droppings so the dogs t don't lick it up when they head out to pee? I'm thinking a small cordless hand vac or something?

    Recently I read that some major manufacturers put their cigars that are ready for shipment in a big room and suck all the air out of it. Evidently the resulting depressurization causes any beetle eggs to explode or something...anyway, it kills them. I've got one of those Foodsaver vacuum packing...

    After looking up old threads and doing some searching online I found a good way to vacuum seal up Mason jars for next to nothing. I have a Ziploc hand vacuum pump that I got at Wal-Mart a while back for under $4 for the pump and a set of bags. If you poke a hole in the top of a Mason jar lid...

    So I was at Wal-Mart and saw this thing in the isle. Do you think it would help with saving tins of tobacco once they have been opened? Just wondering if anyone has tried it or what they thought about it... -Danny

    Do you guys use these and do they work well at preserving the beans longer? which ones are the best bang for your buck?
  17. General Cigar Discussion
    I have searched this a few times and haven't found what I have been looking for. I was wondering if a good way to store cigars is by vacuum sealing them in some sort of container, like those food saver tupperware looking ones. Form what I have read sealing them in bags crushes them.

    Before you lash out at this noob who can't use the search function, I did - and found this: :r I also found other threads that batted the 'theory' around, people who said they employed the method but no specifics on techniques...

    Check this out: I bought 5 of the smallest ones off Ebay. Seems like a cool product and a perfect answer to keeping aromas and flavors intact after opening a tin. At times I may have a tin open for months, and I have noticed that the aromas and flavors fade over time...

    I have one of those Food Saver vacuum sealers that I have found great to use when sending out cigars. The trick is to NOT suck the air out, just push most of the air out and use the sealing function to seal the cigars inside the food saver bag. Once the bag is sealed fold any loose ends over and...
