also, when I asked about jars for repackaging, I meant where do you get foodsaver jars, so I can vacuum seal the hops!

I got some on ebay. how much should I be paying?

Not sure about the foodsaver jars, but with the foodsaver attachment, any mason jar (depending on regular/wide mouth) becomes a vacuum-sealable jar, and probably for 800% less cost than buying an actual foodsaver brand jar.

Just make sure you get the wide mouth or regular mouth, depending on your jar type.

It basically sucks the air out from the jar, and the lid gets sucked onto the jar right afterwards.

what would fit walmart quart size mason jars?

also, I just use that on a mason jar then it sucks the air out and locks it with the regular lid and you can just move it to lock another jar correct?

Their workload must be approaching normal levels again. Ordered yesterday afternoon and received an e-mail with shipping charges last night.

IIRC, people were able to get 1/2 pound in quart jars... but I might be thinking of pint jars...
*Edit* see here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/grea...ml#post1548118 (9 oz in 12 oz jar, don't pack them to the brim)

Yep, reuse the lid over and over again. Put the lid on the jar, put the attachment over the lid/jar, suck out the air with the attachment, and the lid is held on by the vacuum of air in the jar. Then just screw on the outside ring thingy to hold it in place, and you're good to go. When you open it, just redo the vacuum seal and reuse the lid as long as it stays sealable. Eventually you'll need to replace lids as the gaskets wear out, but you can buy new lids in separate packs so you can reuse the jars/rings.
