chief seems slightly more expensive.  worth it?

 

 

eta:  threw a pound of mosiac from yakima chief on my ritebrew order.  this was one that was a little cheaper than yakima valley so I figured I'd give it a whirl.  Didn't cause shipping price to go up.

IMO, yes, worth it.  In my experience, better product and more variety.  Plus I love their business model.

just confirming, yakima chief bags shouldn't be "tight" right?  I've had a lot of bags (not from Yakima chief) that have lost seal before arrival in the past.

on the yakima chief's website it looks like the bags are not "tight" so they are probably just purged with something that doesn't contain O2.

 

you've never received a bag of hops that has lost it's seal?  this has happened to me at least a few times.

Not once in 25 years that I recall
