    If you seal smaller batches when you open them you would not have to eat all 10 in case? of no power to reseal or camping that way only like 4 would get wet or stay fresher longer so you use a little more bag material now the in a real disaster

    If its sealed away, it should be fine. Keep it cool and dry. The cool and most stable the temps, the? better.

    I did this but in mylar, then put in buckets for long term? storage. Hope it works! Thanks

    I thought about that. But then I figured that the packs are nicely sealed already and somewhat moisture resistant. Also, if the outer bag ever gets punctured,? then the inside packs are still separate and sealed.

    My reason anyway.

    Question: Why not? pop a small pinhole in each of the oatmeal bags before sucking all the air out, so that it sucks the air out of each of the individual bags as well? It seems that would remove the air that is in each pack, but yet still keep the oatmeal in each pack.

    I may be sealing up some raw green coffee beans one day soon. You can find them at local coffee? shops that roast their own beans. Green beans have a longer shelf life and hold their flavor longer.

    Not sure what you mean by the coffee bricks in mylar bags tho. Can you tell me what brand for example? All I have seen is foil bricks.

    Ive always been amazed at those coffee bricks in mylar bags. Ive collected a ton of them after just taking an iron to one..and it sealed it perfectly with one swipe. Im collecting them to try and make a Dewar type of freezer chest. But Im also curious about re-using them for what they were intended…vacuum packed food. If? you like coffee and get the chance…Ild appreciate you demonstrating vacuum packing a mylar coffee bag.

    Mine is a Deni, was $29 on Amazon.? Well worth it. Forget the bad reviews, just prop up the bag when its sucking and it will crush a soda can according to their claims and I believe it. Thats the key to making these work well.
