When I worked in Connecticut Shade tobacco we used to just grab a handful of leaves and squeeze. If the leaves stayed squeezed, they were too damp, If they returned to their original shape after squeezing, the moisture was considered to be correct. And of course, if it was crinkly or broken from squeezing, it was too dry.Looking to get some advice on what the whole leaf tobacco moisture should be for RYO cigarettes?
Also does anyone know a good device for measuring it? Preferably somewhere in Toronto?
