You guys might already know, but you can use the Hop Union bags with leftover hops in and vacuum seal them, i do have a vacuum sealer but had no idea the vacuum would actually work, on the bags, ive always bought vacuum bags.
It does work how cool, fresh(ish) hops every time.

No i had no idea. I thought those sealer bags had special glue or something that made the seal stay.

I didn't know that either, but I'm definitely going to try it. Thanks for the tip!

I know, no more extra spending on the funny bag thingies, i will say however, i have the Ziploc brand sealer, will it work on other machines? i dont know, but i dont see why not.
Give it a try and good luck.

I have the ziplock bags with the handheld pump deal. Those, without a doubt, never stayed air tight. I have two boxes of bags intended for hops as well, but maybe I should try those bags on my food saver.

It's a cool find nonetheless.
