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

This is a chamber vacuum sealing machine.  This is a different technology than most home caliber machines use. This technology is superior and allows you to seal using both standard channel style bags and compatible mylar bags.
