Rival Vacuum Sealer + Bag Starter Kit… $27.99 + Recent Hop Finds

This highly rated Rival Vacuum Sealer has recently sold for as much as $73.95.  It’s down to $27.99.  That’s the lowest price we’ve seen and just $1.03 off the record low.  The combo includes a starter selection of vacuum bags.  It ships free with Prime or with a qualifying $35 order.

If you don’t have a vacuum sealer, now is a great time to get one.  Closeout 2013 crop hop deals are on the horizon.  As new 2014 crop comes in stock, retailers are going to discount 2013 stock.

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 (see the tips page) and storing and preserving other beer ingredients.
