Do any of you bulk buyers have any tips for keeping it in good condition? I am planning on buying some bulk SG and wondered if there's anything I need to consider with moist snuffs like Black Rappee and Scotch Black.
Thanks in advance.
If kept in an airtight container in a cool dark place it should keep for decades. Air, heat, light and temperature fluctuations are the enemy of long term tobacco storage
I use pint size Mason jars..when it gets to half empty I transfer to 1 cup jar to keep the air volume down.
Not tempted to buy in bulk really as I don't want to risk the stuff going stale. I am not a massively heavy user and have several tins on the go at the same time. Plus snuff is not that expensive and my suppliers are reliable
bulk is king. And mason jars will keep it better then any tin ever would
Bulk snuff doesn't go stale and if you put stale snuff back in its bulk container the bulk snuff rejuvenates it.
Pick your container size so air is kept to a minimum, and decant into smaller containers as quantity goes down. With bulk moist snuffs, I tend to use more smaller containers, so even if one tub gets hit by mould, I haven't lost the lot. Mould is always a risk you take with moister snuffs in storage, and you just have to take it on the chin when it happens, so splitting a 500g drum up into 100ml glass jars is a smart move. Accept that some WILL go mouldy despite your best efforts, and stock/store accordingly.
Drier snuffs are less prone to spoilage, but even so, I would NEVER dump any snuff back into bulk. The only thing that goes into bulk snuff is a clean spoon.
