Default Grrr. Desi Murli!!!!

So I, like a lot of us, have fallen in love with DM recently. I've had some Pan (300g) in a gladware jar for about a month and I go to open it last night and there's MOLD on it. I didn't want to tempt fate by recreating an episode of House (oh, he SMOKED the mold, that's why he pooped out a lung), so I dumped it.

I have never had mold happen to any of my shisha. I still have the first can of Blue Mist (my first shisha) that I ever bought, and while I wouldn't really want to smoke it now at least there's no MOLD on it. What gives?

Default Re: Grrr. Desi Murli!!!!

the only conclusion me and my roommate could come up with is that I must have F'd up and not screwed the lid on as tightly as possible. But then again I've bags of AF where I ripped the whole damn ziplock deal off on accident and it never went bad. I'm scared of the rest of my DM stock now... blackberry's not a huge loss but I did like that strawberry milkshake and strawberry lemonade...

store it in a cool dark place. DM has no preservatives in it, that's why it can mold.

build a humidity/temp controlled display case. to safely store it in for long periods of time.
or you might buy a win cooler (some offer humidity controlled as well as temp because the cork might mold)

It happens. You are dealing with the difference between older styles of tobacco and modern stuff that is intentionally preserved to avoid exactly this.

Just smoke it faster :P

It should tell you something that even mold doesn't want anything to do with blue mist :P

Seriously though, the others are right. Desi Murli lacks chemical preservatives and such and then is more susceptible to such things.

Personally, Desi Murli never lasts around my place long enough for it to be a concern.

you should be fine (if you rather not go buy/build something) be fine by putting the stuff in the fridge in the meat or veggy section (some refrigerators have a drawer for both because they tend to keep better at different temp and humidity then other stuff in a fridge) but this may only make it last a week or two longer(im assuming)

I seem to remember bigpoppa saying that he stores his in a fridge and it's fine for the long term. Would have to ask him thought to double check it.

I have a bunch of DM that is many, many months old. I just checked it and it is not moldy at all, in fact it is nice and moist and smells brand new. I have it sealed in ziploc bags and also tupperware. The bags are kept in the "crisper" drawer of my refrigerator. I got the idea to store it in the fridge from BigPoppa.

Aye, thx for the tip. I have about a kilo of the stuff! Let's see what the wife says when she finds "that stuff" in her fridge!
