I recently got into snuff and have my first large order coming from MrSnuff (about 35 different 25g tins and a few 10g and 15g tins). With so many new snuffs to try I won't be getting to everything for a while and will need to store it. After doing some research here on the forum on how people store snuff I had a few additional questions I was hoping you could help me with.
1. How do you recommend I store the unopened tins? I know some people open them and decant into a different container for long term storage, but I would rather store them in the original tins. I have a foodsaver and also a lot of 1/2 pint mason jars. Would you recommend that I just vacuum seal them in foodsaver bags to store them, or just place each individual tin in an individual 1/2 pint mason jar, or vacuum seal and then put in a mason jar? I was wondering if there might be too much air space in a 1/2 pint mason jar as to make it somewhat ineffective, and I was wondering if vacuum sealing it in a foodsaver bag would hinder any potential aging that may occur.
2. What is a good temperature for storage? Should I keep them in the refrigerator or is a room temp or 60-80F good enough?
3. I plan on purchasing some jars to decant the snuffs that I open and am currently using into from here: http://www.specialtybottle.com/salvejarsambermi.aspx
What size jar would be right for 25g of snuff?
Thanks again everyone, this forum has been very helpful!
