I read somewhere that mold on tobaccos can sometimes be an issue, depending on how tobaccos are packaged/shipped.
It got me thinking about how the potential for mold, bacteria, or other contaminants on tobacco might transfer to our extracts, particularly to PG extracts. I’m not sure what can live in PGA, and understand that PG is even resistant to bacterial growth, but maybe the stuff that might grow in a pouch of tobacco is something different?
Not worried, really. Just curious. Is there a way to make sure our extracts are “clean”, without otherwise harming the extract’s flavor or safe vapability? Maybe add a small amount of PGA after the extract is finished, then evap it off?
I know, if there is a green, fuzzy, moving mass in my tobacco, I probably shouldn’t use it :]
But what about stuff we cannot see?
