Sometimes I'm unavoidable detained from brewing. If I couldn't breakout the leftover hops and give them a whiff every now and again...I'd go crazy.

Use what you need...mark the bag with what's leftover...throw them in a freezer bag and stow away. You'll be glad you did.

I have one of these. It works very well and is easy to use.

I grow my own hops and packed the whole crop last year using this. ~6 oz. into 1/4oz baggies.
Hmmmm.... Where have I seen these before?

Alternative suggestion: Put the left overs in a cheesecloth satchel then hang over a vent in your car....instant homebrewer air freshener

LOL...good point! Perforate your LD Carlson or AHS baggie and use that in place of the cheese cloth.

Im having a hard time visualizing how big that is. When I first saw it a while back, it looked like it could only be used with pellets. You measure whole hops with it?

I weigh my hops each time. I use a digital postal scale. 1 oz. is 28 grams, so, 14 grams for 1/2 ounce, 7 grams for a 1/4 ounce.

Works for me.

Buy your hops by the pound and use the savings for a digital scale. Life will be better.

The thing is small - less than 3"x3" and less than 1/4" thick. Easily can fit in a shirt pocket. It fits in your palm of your hand. The round weight is the size of a nickel.

I clip on a small snack baggy then fill it with pellets until it meets the proper weight + 1 gram. The baggy is ~1gm.

I usually use the gram scale because it has smaller divisions. One could use the oz side just add alittle past the amount needed to make up for the baggy.

Yes - I used it with whole hops. I used sandwich bags. I could fill one full of fresh dried hops up to the point where you can't fit anymore, barely zippable. Then verified the weight at 1/4 oz. Nearly spot on everytime.

I don't know what I would have done without it, I had it since I started this hobby.
