Right now i roll a carton at a time using the good stuff menthol gold and using golden harvest full flavor tubes.
I put them in ziplock backs and then in small plastic containers (there is about 4 packs in each container)
I tried the refrigerator they were too moist by the time day 3 rolled around and then went stale quick.
I tried keep them out of the fridge and it seems they lasted a little longer but were dryer ??
Any tips - I would like to be able to make 2 cartons at a time so I only have to make them 1 time a week my hubby and i both smoke so we usually go thru 2 cartons a week.

The last oder I got seemed pretty stale, felt very dry as well. some were in the containers and some in the ziploc type bags. The order before that the tobacco was nice and moist, sure had to leave out for a few minutes before rolling but there is definitely a taste difference.
Guess there is no way to assure freshness upon delivery? Or about 'refreshing?'
Putting a piece of Orange or tangerine rind into the bag really moistens them up and adds a kick to the flavor as well.
