Post back your opinions on them when you guys get finished beers.

I might get me some along with some simcoe and some more amarillo. I was really impressed with the leaf hops they have over the stuff hops direct has.

Indeed. I got a lb of amarillo leaf while other people are fighting over pellets.

I just don't have the freezer space to store whole hops. I would have to buy a whole other chest freezer just to house the whole hops with the amount I use/buy.

Invest in a foodsaver.

I bought my first load of hops from freshops and got leaf amarillo, cascade, and magnum. Then I ordered Chinook, Cascade, Belma, Comet, and some more Magnum, along with some Citra, Amarillo and Belma pellets.

I think I'm gonna do one more buy, and get some Willamette leaf, Mosaic, Simcoe, maybe another 1/2 lb of Amarillo, and some Simcoe and that'll be it.

I bought a foodsaver, and it's easy to break them down into 2-4oz bags, squeeze the air out, and they are pretty flat actually. I can stack up 2 lbs of hops in less than 14 inches high. I've got some that aren't even frozen, just vacuum packed and stored in the kegerator.

BJ's has them on sale right now I think for like $99 bucks, with a couple rolls of bags.

Not a bad deal, I thought.
