Controlled Room Fermentation (Sweating/Mulling)
Hail & Cotton Inc., Springfield, TN, USA, offers 2 fermentation rooms. The computer-controlled rooms automatically adjust humidity and temperature according to requirements. Contrary to natural fermentation of the tobacco whereby the tobacco heats up under the pressure of its own weight during a very long period, the fully controlled temperature cycles and tobacco humidity allow the tobacco to expel (or sweat out) the ammonia and impurities in the leaves in a much shorter time cycle.
