    Three Nuns Anyone?

    Unless my cellars been the victim of a Russian chemical attack, I'm fairly certain somethings amiss with my three nuns. Having put some vintage nuns in a jar with a hydration stone, Voilą! I think you'll agree the result is nothing short of spectacular! Lol. I've hydrated loads of old tobacco before now, never even a speck of mold. This latest result brings my run of good luck to an end.

    A tragedy indeed. I'm sorry for your loss.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    It's only tobacco!

    But it is a true shame.

    That's a shame. I know next to nothing about storing tobacco but can I ask why you put the hydration stone in with it?

    I store my sayri twist dry then hydrate it out of the jar as and when needed.

    Of course you can ask me Crawford. I put the stone in cause I planned on smoking the lot when it was hydrated. It was only a couple of ounces worth, so gone in two days with me.
