Question Finally it's here! How to store?

Hey guys! Finally my tobacco has arrived! it was a risk Im really not taking again.. It was very expensive and IF customs would have found it, It could be BIG problems for me.. So the tobacco I ordered I would like to hold as long as possible!

Im afraid of opening to many jars at the same time cus I dont want it to become bad after a few months.. Since with this tobacco I would have alittle over 20 sorts of different tobacco brands and flavours that is opened! and 250 grams.. So Im afraid I wont be able to smoke it all before it starts getting bad...

I know I should store it in airtight jars and that is of course what i would do. The nakhla and al fakher I store in glass jar: http://www.ikea.com/se/sv/catalog/products/40065867
And the starbuzz and Fusion I will put in ziplocks and keep in the original jars.. Everything is of course stored in dark room - room temperature..

So ehat do u say? Is there better way to store this? like does it make difference if I put the nakhlas and AF in zoplock and then in glass jar instead of just in glass jar? And should I store SB in otherway? And should I be careful with not having to many jars open cus they might get bad or should I just fire aheaD?
How long do you think they can be stored without them getting loss in taste or juice ?

I do not know if the jar is airtight or not, but an airtight ziplock is much better

.. yeah If Id live in the states.. I would be smoking this five times a day!
Also from earlier orders I got a Al fakher Golden Grape as well .. So my collection is very good now Thats why I want to really store it well!!
Some people tell me that tobacco is valid from 2 yars of exp. date.. But that is not after you have opened it Im pretty sure of! Just like everything else u buy that has a date stamp on it.. from the moment you have opened it the valid date is changes!

cant find a link but you know... glad storage bags.. they have the vaccum seal kind and ziplock kind. it just keeps air from getting in while in storage for a period of time.

But yeah Im gonna but the starbuzzes and fusion in ziplock bags for the freeze.. and the rest of the topbacco Im putting in ziplocks and in the glass jars ..

I'm sure you wouldn't mistake them. Ziploc storage bags have a seal, sandwich bags do not. As long as it has a seal, they're good

Yep double all the bags, they dont cost a lot and it really keeps it airtight,

i made the mistake of putting it all in the jars, some are 100% air tight some aren't

Make sure you dont open and close them without needing to as they get them less tight

Man Ive got a new problem now.. I read a thread from dmc and ow Im worried that I will have to pay customs for the stuff.. Im not sure but the package had a hole in it ( second time cus last package also had a hole in it ) so im thinking they have opened it and put a hand in it and felt the tobacco and charged me for it.. Cus this package went in for inspection but was let out again.. And dmc got his package once and then he got papers later on sent at home saying that he has to pay customs...
Maybe thats what will happend to me too, so i must call them tomorrow and ask them what'sup cus I cannot afford paying 3.25kg tobacco customs.. that will be sooooo much !!

Ziploc sandwich bags do come with a zip loc seal, the storage version are heavier gauge and can come with up to two zip loc seals. Just because it's called sandwich doesn't mean it doesn't zip seal. The sandwich versions tend to let air in, quite easily.

DO NOT CALL THEM, you are inviting trouble by this call. Leave it at that, if they do not call u, cool ..... if they call u, deal with it then.... but if YOU call them they will definitely charge u and u might even be in legal trouble.

Yeah these are what I have, Glad's ... with a double zipper, they are freezable and microwavable (not that I would ever do that) and airtight, I tried squeezing air out of them while zipped, not a single atom of air is out !
