What is the best way to store hops without a vacuum sealer? Just put them in a ziploc bag and squeeze out as much air as possible, then freezer? How will not vacuum sealing them affect storage time?
Why not opt for the trusty ole mason jar?
You can also buy some empty coffee bean bags with the vent on them.http://www.sweetmarias.com/sweetmarias/miscellaneous/bags/valve-bags.html
Bags that I'm going to use soon I just use a bread bag tie on. I use the food saver for more long term storage.
