Brass Storage

I just started the stainless steel tumbling method of cleaing my brass and man am I loving it. With that I've got all this clean brass now and need to know the best way to store it without it getting tarnished and nasty looking again. I'm open to all methods. Does throwing it in a clean plastic coffee can with some desiccant silica gel work or do I need to look into sealing airtight some how?

Thanks for all responses

Re: Brass Storage

I use Ziplock bags then place the bags in metal surplus ammo cans.

+1 on ziplocks. I then put the bags into plastic tupperware to organize.
