I have a vacuum sealer and a roll of foodsaver bags. I picked up the sealer for about $40 on craigslist...great investment! They also sell ziploc bags with a "pump vacuum sealer", which work pretty good also. I bought one at first, but after losing the pump(and probably paying $10-15 between the pump and expensive resealable baggies) I decided to go with the actual vacuum sealer, and I love it! If you have bulk hops, you really can't go without it!

However, if there is any other suggestion to keeping the hops fresh, if you don't have any kind of vacuum sealer, I'd love to know!

I'm going to place an order soon for some of the noble hops. Ever consider having a Noble Hops pack with 4 ounces each of Hallertau, Tettnanger, Spalt, and Saaz? That might make a nice addition to your other lineups.

Money is a little tight so that is why I was wondering about the ziplock freezer idea. If they last for awhile that way then I will do it otherwise I have to try and find hops in a smaller oz size.

How does a guy from WI get away with having a screen name of Steelers77 without getting lynched by the locals?

This is how I store my opened hop pellet packs. I squeeze as much air as I can out of the ziplock bag and seal it. I always use the freezer bags and double bag them. A vacuum sealer is on my "to get" list also.
