A Guide to Making Your Own Snus

 

1. Purchase 1 kg of a decent Tobacco Flour. Virginias mixed with burley are usually good tobaccos to use for snus. The tobacco needs to be above avaerage in nictone strength; the Burley raises the nictoine level, and the Virginia adds a mellow, sweet taste to the blend.

 

If you can, plan a year ahead and cultivate your own tobacco from seeds. It's a lot of work, but it's great to be able to make a product from seed to finished snus. Besides, you'll never have to pay for that precious tobacco again!

 

2. Pour the Tobacco Flour into a large bowl. Boil about 6-7 dl of Water, and add 100 g of Salt. Whisk until dissolved. Let it cool slightly, then add the water solution to the tobacco. Stir it together using either a hand mixer or a stand mixer. Mix for about 10-15 minutes, less if you use a stand mixer.

 

3. Put the tobacco in a large, oven safe container (with lid), slightly pressing down the tobacco. Place the container in the oven and let it ferment for 24 hours. The temperature should be about 85° C.

 

It's important to check the temperature every once in while. The temperature should not exceed 90° C.

 

4. After 24 hours in the oven, take the tobacco out of the oven. The snus should now cool down to room temperature. After the snus has cooled down, mix 5-7 dl of cold water with 50 g of Sodium Carbonate. Let the Sodium Carbonate dissolve, then add it to the snus.

 

5. Mix the snus well for about 15-20 minutes using a stand mixer; longer time if you use a hand mixer. Once the snus starts forming small balls of tobacco in the bowl it's usually mixed well enough.

 

6. Add 50 gr of Glycerin and Water to your liking. It's important that the snus is moist. If you like a more firm snus, add a few table spoons of thickener, i.g. Rubber arabicum.

 

7. Mix it well in a stand mixer for about 15-20 minutes. If you use a hand mixer double the time. Add flavorings like Bergamotte, Eucalyptus or Tar to flavor the snus.

 

8. Put the snus in a fridge for 2 weeks to mature.

 

9. After maturing in the fridge for 2 weeks, you can once again mix the snus, adding more water and flavorings. The more you mix, the firmer the snus. The snus should weigh about 2-2.5 kg when done.

 

10. Enjoy!

Hint!

If you wish to experiment, then just add Sodium Carbonate, Glycerin and Water, and put the snus in the fridge for 2 weeks without adding flavorings. After 2 weeks you can add whatever flavorings you like to a smaller amount of snus, thus giving you more variety.
