aye, and what a place to be
But do you really want to smoke the stuff after he's done bathing in it?

You mean you're not familiar with the JWM Drinkless Stem Insert (patent pending)? It keeps you from drawing bitter moisture through the stem by obstructing it completely.

Seriously, though, that is a sweet pipe rack. Are those tobacco jars or just wooden ornamentation in the back of it, Jeremiah?

I find that if you both squint your eyes, as suggested by Dug, and shake your head back and forth while looking at the picture, you really get a feel for what it would be like...

The pipe rack is shaped like an eye, with a row in the back to match the row in the front. The two jars that sit in the middle are real. I bought it on eBay a few months ago.

I put a cleaner in my pipes after smoking to suck up residual moisture. If I don't get around to removing them after a few hours, they stay in the pipe until the next smoke. Seems to work.

I've seen others do the same, including Chip. You're right, seems to work rather well.

I've never felt comfortable with keeping the cleaner in there indefinitely. The idea is to let everything dry out, so it would seem that after X amount of time the moisture would be mostly contained in the cleaner, but it would still be in the pipe. Moisture is bacteria's friend, so though I might leave the cleaner in following an exceptionally gurgly smoke, I generally pull it no later than the next morning.

Dunno. Anybody have objective evidence, as opposed to the subjective we're throwing out like "I do it this way and I'm not dead yet" ? :wink:

You guys... some of your "cellars" look really organized and put together... I was thinking of sharing a pic of my modest stock, but then I thought ... geez, I better tidy this up a bit first! Mine is kind of all-over my studio...

Skip... I tend to agree... I used to leave a pipe cleaner in my pipes, as Irish-Dane mentioned...but I stopped for exactly the reason you mentioned.

However... when I'm traveling, after smoking a pipe I always leave a pipe cleaner in before putting it back into my bag... then when I get home I remove it before putting back in the rack... my thinking there, the pipe cleaner will absorb any left over moisture that would not dry out as quickly inside my pipe bag.

Good point, Skip.

Well I won't be jumping for statistical tests of hypotheses, but that's a step in the direction of objectivity. Thanks, jam4ar.

I just drop all of my pipes into a tall, gleaming glass jar of Barbicide and let them pickle until my next smoke. It gives even the cheapest of tobaccos the hearty tang of hospital-grade disinfectant. Mmmmm, alkyl dimethylbenzyl ammonium chloride...

I thought I saw a more recent thread with this topic, but I will post here. It's impossible to see all the tobacco, as it's all jammed in one of the shelves here in the hallway closet, which stays a more even temperature year round. Anyway, this is my store house of pipe tobacco I have accumulated since February 2016.

Lots of tins of stuff I like and lots of bulk tobacco in more than 48 Kerr 1/2 pint jars in the back (Kerr boxes stack well, too). The large box in the upper left is packed full with 25 tins of McClelland Aurora and Tudor Castle. The most tins I have of any one tobacco are of Dunhill Flake. 21. Next McConnell Scottish Flake. The most bulk I have in jars are Peter Stokkebye Luxury Twist Flake, John Bull, McClelland 5100 Red Cake, McClelland 5115 Old World Classic Cake, & Dunhill Nightcap. There will soon be more jars of Gawith Hoggarth bulk flake I have come to relish.
