I'm curious about the Food Saver and hops. How long do you figure your hops stay good that way?
I bought a storage bag meant for coffee, but I never got a good answer on how well it would work.
I don't see it being much better than a Ziplock baggie as you can't get all of the air out.
I haven't tried to reseal the package the hops come in, but I've wondered if that would work as well. Anyone try it?
I'd certainly prefer to buy the 8 oz bag of hops. I considered opening it and vacuum sealing it into 1 oz packages to keep for a few (<6) months. I'd be OK with losing up to 10% of the AA's, but no more. And there's no way to know for sure...
I've been typically making the majority of my beers with a single hop because I don't want them to sit long. IPA's are generally the only time I'll mix 'em up a bit.
