    Cigarette casing recipe

    Here's an old formula for casing cigarette tobacco, but it can be adjusted for pipe tobacco use.

    Cigarette casing recipe

    From villiger1888.com

    Blending and Conditioning
    When we receive the leaf tobacco it is very dry and fragile. In order to make the tobacco supple enough for handling the tobacco is moistened in rotating cylinders where the tobacco is slowly and gently carried through water and steam. Before conditioning the individual tobacco grades are weighed out according to Peter Stokkebye's own recipes. Burley tobacco undergoes a special process called casing before it is mixed with the Virginia and Oriental tobaccos. The casing is made of liquorice, cocoa, maple syrup and chocolate; these substances are boiled in water and then added to the tobacco.

    Re: Cigarette casing recipe

    sorry to bring back an old thread but I find the recipe quite interesting (maybe because it's from a Big Tobacco company). Have you tried this recipe at all Don?

    I may consider making this recipe. I have done a little bit of cross checking, seeing what each item would do for the smoking experience and made a scaled down recipe. I haven't tried it yet but may do so soon just to see how it turned out.

    Re: Cigarette casing recipe

    I did some research into easy replacements for certain items, recipe scaling down, and reasons for use. If you see an error please discuss it.

    Item Measurement Replacement For Reason for replacement Reason for use
    Cocoa power 13.4 tablespoons Cocoa and chocolate Easier over all process Add very light flavor, reduce harshness
    licorice extract 1 teaspoon Licorice Granules Easier to obtain Add flavor, reduce ammonia flavor
    honey 5 tablespoons Invert Syrup Easier to obtain preserves,flavors, helps deliver nicotine
    Corn syrup 10 tablespoons preserves
    Glycerine USP 10 tablespoons preserves, seems to aid in burning
    Table Salt 1/2 teaspoon Sodium Benzoate Possible Carcinogen (FDA) preserves
    Purified Water 15 tablespoons “water” Clear of hard water chemical helps spread mixture onto leaf

    Re: Cigarette casing recipe

    on second thought this is a lot like Don's Hershey's recipe, mind you my recipe above is just a test, looking at it that 13.4 tablespoons seems a lot

    Re: Cigarette casing recipe

    Michibacy, Here's some food for thought.

    Honey is made up of Fructose and Glucose. Depending on the floral source the ratios will vary.
    Corn Syrup is fructose
    Invert Syrup is sucrose that has been chemically or enzymatically broken down into glucose and fructose

    All three above the above are basically the same thing so you could probably just eliminate the fructose for instance and just add a little more honey.

    I'm not absolutely certain but I remember from somewhere that glycerin is a humectent that is "keeps the tobacco moist longer". I don't remember it as a preservative.

    I'd be interested in that! What little bit I've done was a PIA.

    I have used glycerine as a preservative in flowers before. I dry the flowers then soak them in glycerine then hang dry. it seems to keep scent and color longer. I can see where it eoukd be used in cigarette tobacco though, if it would keep the proper humidity longer in the tobbaco in the cigarette.

    Jitter thats a good idea on the honey. worth a try, less work in the long run!
