• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

Did you thin out your root beer 'casing' any with water?

(It was completely dry)
No thinning on the root beer.

Try sticking yours back in the oven and drying it crisp... just to see... mine did not come out sticky that way...

I just got done smoking WLT Burley (toasted and cased with agave)... rolled in a WLT Bright wrapper, ciggy style... sublime. My favorite home for WLT's Burley is all by it's lonesome. :)

I smoked pall malls when they were American tobacco company. So burley casing is supposed to be overly sweet. But making invert sugar syrup and adding a bit of water and glycerin seems to be best for simply smoothing it out and taking away most of the bite.

Orange on Virginia sounds appetizing... kinda a McClellan East Carolina Ribbon citrus type thing...

I have had some of that McClellan its a nice blender but I find that citrus taste is bittersweet good for blending. I have a lot at home and it blends well with the old lemon but not with the new lemon. Carolina Virginias have a unique taste to them great for blending.
