Default Shipping TBD from hops direct

Im trying to order like 8 pounds from hops direct and it is telling me shipping to be determined. I am in california. Has anyone gotten this message before? and what did your shipping costs come out to if you dont mind?

I got it shipping to Buffalo. Not sure what it came to, but it was not shocking because I can not remember.

They charged actual shipping, I believe. It wasn't dirt cheap, but it was whatever UPS charged them. I think it was around $18, while Freshops was $14 for 2.5 pounds.

I paid 14.50 shipping for a 6 lb order. Overall this is a great deal on 2011 pellet hops.

thats actually what i got, 6 not 8 lbs.

Another question though. How do you store them if you dont have a food saver or vacuum sealer?

IMO, with hops shortages and what not going on, I'd invest in a food saver. It's worth it in the long run. I have nearly a lb of cascade pellets that keep giving me blah beer because I didn't vacuum seal them.

The compact mealsaver model is dirt cheap.
