Woot! Thanks everyone!

Also, our CTZ is Zeus that was grown at a farm half an hour from my home in Idaho. They're fantastic. They also just harvested a bunch of Cascade, Centennial and Chinook that we just had pelletized Once we move through our 2012 crop stock of those varieties we'll have 2013 in

I just started considering buying one so I have not shopped around yet for one to know which one is good.
I don't see myself spending 100 on one though

I'm now using up your 2012 CTZ - it smells amazing out of the bag - now I know why!

Big fan of Zeus - I'm of the general impression that Zeus is not the same as Columbus. I wish I could find some definitive info. I've seen sites say its just trademark names and I've seen sites that say Columbus and Tomahawk are identical while Zeus is similar in profile but genetically different - i.e. not the same. I have never got the same flavors/aromas from Columbus as Zeus.

I will certainly be ordering some 2013 Zeus Crop from you! I've been searching for this and only one other place had it and only by the ounce.

Cheers,


Tim

as long as it works it doesn't matter; the real issue with any item that has proprietary consumables is their running cost.
look at how much the bags cost on the different systems and what you needed it for then go from there. after that there is little difference.
my GF had an older foodsaver sealer so i found that Sam's has their bags in bulk for cheap, its just going to take me a few years at least to go through them.


back on topic, my hops shipped yah!

Any of the Foodsaver line are pretty good and affordable. I've had one for over 10 yrs now...still going strong. It might take longer to do the same work (the vaccum motor on it is probably getting weaker) but it still keeps all kinds of things vaccum sealed - nuts, hops, crystal malt, meat, cheese....you name it.

You can get a mason jar adaptor for the bag vacuums. It sucks the air out so you can turn the jar upside down it hour the seal breaking. It works way better than the bags.
