Yup, often enough to know if you close the jar tight all will be fine for a number of months. I've done this for years with no major issues.
GO FOR IT, open a jar and just reseal tight, enjoy!!

A jar of tobacco?

Sure, I do it often. Just remember it will arrest any aging development.

If you open it...isn't it ajar?

Any idea of the reason for this? Why will opening the jar arrest the aging process?

By opening the jar your exposing the tobacco to fresh air, therefore the natural fermentation that's started will stop. But will start to ferment again if the jar is not opened often. Once I open any jar I really don't worry about future fermentation of the blend, it's to be smoked until the jar is empty. Every pipe smoker has their own personal anal attentive ways...lol

Got it. Thank you.

I guess that I will have to revise my storage method. For example, I bought a lb. of Stokkeby LBF, but stuffed it all into one large jar and put it in the cellar. Of course, I withheld a few ounces to smoke now which was put in a separate small jar for immediate consumption. My plan was to keep filling the small jar (as needed) from the large jar. It seems that I would be better off jarring bulk tobaccos in smaller jars (just more of them) from now on, so that I can leave a few unopened for the best aging results. Oh well, It's all a learning process. Thanks for the feedback, LC.

BriarBeagle-^^^^^^^


In a case like that, purchase the much smaller jars for your LBF or Flake blends. This way you open a small jar that you will enjoy smoking while the other jars still age/ferment properly. 
I also use the smaller jars for most of the blends I purchase by the pound, makes it much more convenient on blends I smoke more often than others. 

Seems none of the tabs on top are working properly today. Another Forumotion issue again!!!
