Hello everyone,
I’ve been buying a fair amount bulk tobacco. Has anyone ever tried vacuum sealing in the plastic vacuum sealer bags? Thoughts?

Works for cigars. Should work fine for pipe tobacco.
I wouldn't suck all the air out, for fear of pulling moisture too.

Mason jars have always been good enough for me.
Vacuum doesn't really add anything extra, and might prevent aging.

I haven't ever seriously considered vacuum sealing. Mason jars do the job for me.

I wish I didn't feel the need to hoard, cellar, or whatever at all because that would mean that tobacco prices were consistently low and the supply consistently there. Ideally I'd buy a tub of PA at the grocery store for < $15 and live on that for a couple of weeks until I needed another tub. I do it for money reasons, but generally I think the concept of cellaring is weird. But then I'm weird I guess. :?

I have been using mason jars for years now, and I’ll probably continue to for smaller amounts. I started buy bulk by the pounds, I thought about if vacuum sealing would stop the aging process.
