#perique processing day #21. Tobacco is definitely getting darker and staying to smell a lil swampy/compost-ish. I’m wishing now that I had used a container with a larger footprint so I wasn’t folding the leaves as much as it would shorten the time it takes to unpack, unfold and repack 50-some tobacco leaves. Takes me just over an hour.
At this point, though, I only have to touch it a couple more times in the next few months.

Fermentation project day 7: first repack. I had a feeling last week that my tobacco was too dry. What I’m seeing today is some leaf beginning to ferment and some that is still dry. Before repacking, i gave them all a short dunk in distilled water. It’s all back in press now and looking better. #perique #fermentation #pipetobacco
