I just got a food saver, mainly for hops. I saw someone looking for a source for these bags. Anyone try these or have a better source?

The mylar ones that I buy hops already packaged in will not seal with the thermal sealing strip on my foodsaver. I have seen many others have this issue. Just FYI warning not to go buy a ton of em without trying it out first!

Interesting. I just resealed my bags using it. I wonder what the difference is? One of the products I saw specifically mentioned using a food saver.

That would probably work then??? The oxygen barrier ones I get will seal for about 10 seconds and then pull apart. Even if I try consecutive seal cycles on it.

If there is an oxygen barrier version out there that seals on a food saver I would definitely be interested!
