"logistics" = baler, eventually. We've had people try to deliver hops to our processing facility in everything from pillow cases to a horse trailer full of super sacks. Another group drove all the way from NY in a minivan so crammed full of hops, the person in the back seat had to have two bags in their lap. Another time a prius showed up with bags protruding out the windows. Yeah, "logistics" is important.

Exactly. I've been working on our own design for one with a compression ratio of 10:1 or 14:1. Logistics. That's what winter is for!

I am in Syracuse and looking for someone in the area that has a Pelletizer and could do a few small projects for me. Wouldn't take long at all.

Unfortunately, there is no one in the Syracuse area that has a Pelletizer (yet). Sorry!!

Depending on how far out you consider the Syracuse "area", there are at least 2 functional pelletizers operating. PM me and I'll send you the details.

Just a warning, unless you are willing to mix your hops with someone else's or a "small project" is on the order of 50 lbs, it may not be worth it. There are certain loses due to the amount of hops it takes to charge the die. But whoever is pelletizing for you should be able to explain that.
