Has anyone called these guys yet? Something here doesn't seem right. How can they have 44 lb bales of everything? I'm calling them later on today before I order.

By design, Foodsaver bags have to be oxygen barriers. Otherwise they wouldn't hold a vacuum.

They show a pound of Amarillo pellets (my favorite, and I have not seen them all year) for $15 (less than a dollar an ounce, for the math-impaired). I can't help but wonder if they really have them. They are about an hour drive from me - I may call them and ask if they are in stock.

Edit - I called their store. No Amarillo in stock, and only sold by the ounce from retail, but was told that "they should have them" if I ordered them. It's too good of a deal to pass up - please post when you get the shipments because I can't pass this up if it is on the level. Oh, and the payment part of the site appears superficially at least to be secure - the prefix is https anyway.

"https" should do it...actually their link forwarded me to PayPal where I logged in as usual.

I feel confident it's on the up and up.

They were open today??? Sunday???

A pound of cascade for $7? What is up... is this for real? Are these quality hops? Something doesnt seem right... how can they do this?

OH, shipping is $20... well that makes a HUGE difference.

EDIT EDIT... well I can get 4lbs for $59. That is impressive, let me know what sort of service and what sort of hops yall get from these folks. I may have to stock up, food save, and freeze in the deep freeze!

I do check / debt card. If all goes bad I fill out a dispute form and in 1 week get my money back. PayPal is nice but I don't think its guarded like MasterCard or Visa is.

Just ordered 3lbs of Columbus. It's kinda strange how the prices don't add up on the web site. They have a listed price per lb and a number in () which usually means a discount but they don't add up.
