Why would you want a FoodSaver for homebrewing?
Vacuum sealers are indispensable for storing hops.  You can save money by getting in on bulk hop buys.  Use your vacuum sealer to break these up and to preserve freshness.  You can also store specialty grains in vacuum bags or using the mason jar attachment.  Other uses include: storing base grains, partial dry yeast packs and storing and preserving other beer ingredients.

Fresh 2014 Crop Hops – from $10.95 per lb

eBay Seller hausotterted has appeared on HBF many times.  We have received great feedback on this seller.  This seller periodically pulls their entire store from eBay.  My theory on that is that they are traveling or otherwise busy and aren’t able to fill orders in a timely manner.  That dovetails in nicely with the great feedback we’ve received.  They’ve recently done this and I noticed earlier today that their offerings are back.

Fresh 2014 Crop Hops are available starting at $10.95 per lb (Nugget).  Available 2014 varieties include Columbus, Chinook, Bravo, Centennial, Cluster Crystal, Galena, Golding, Hallertau, Horizon, Liberty, Magnum, Mt Hood, Northern Brewer, Nugget, Perle, Santiam, Sorachi Ace, Summit, Tettnang, Warrior, Willamette and Ultra

Additional 2013 offerings along with aged hops for lambics are also available.

Shipping is a flat $4.95 no matter how many hops you order from this seller.  Some multi lb packs are available that include free shipping.
