Ordered (Hop Heaven) 8oz Magnum 2020 pellets for bittering, and 1 lb Mt Hood 2020This was one of my clutch purchases. I was not being vigilant with storing my hops but I have had this thing for 4-5 years now and hops get vac-sealed here now. When I need some I just open the bag, weigh them out and vac them back up.
pellets for flavor/aroma. Would use leaf hops if I had a larger kettle with a false
bottom, using spent hops as a filter bed. Also Ordered small vacuum sealer bags to
freeze/fridge small amounts.
The standard size for vacuum seal bags is way too big for 1/2 oz of pellet hops.
Ordered 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 bags, might be too small, will order next size up if so.
Tried cutting the bags smaller, but wouldn't seal. Avoiding what your going
through, opening then resealing. I did that a few times, and didn't get a fuzzy
feeling doing it. Bought the small bags on amazon for 10 bucks, next size up
was more. I think the next vacuum sealed hops will go in fridge, use them
within a year, or chuck. Over cautious or OCD, whichever, if grains, hops, or
yeast look at me sideways, they get chucked.
