    Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.

    Re: Freezing Tobacco

    As I mentioned in my post in General Discussion (A Short, Long Story) I am going through the weevil problem as we speak. I have unpacked the leaf I had in the freezer for 5-6 days and found no live larva. I gave everything a good shake, brush, turned the bags inside out and repacked. I had a pile of debris like sand and quite a few shriveled up grey carcases but nothing wiggling. Time will tell if I have also killed the eggs. As stated, this problem was only in the WLT that was NOT heat treated at the border and only the Prilep and Flue Cured Virginia Red Leaf. The Lemon leaf is clean as a whistle. I have found no trace of weevils in my own flue or air cured leaf as this year I kilned it all.
    When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All the pain is felt by others.
    The same thing happens when you are stupid!
