Topic: Reusing 1/4 lb. Clear / Clear Stand Up Ziploc Valved (21 lines)
1) From: Matthew Walker
I store my home roasted (I-Roast 2) batches in these SM-provided bags with
the CO2 degassing one way valves.  My question is whether or not (given that
they run .50 per bag) they can be reused with no detrimental impact on the
coffee.  If so, should one try to store only a particular bean in a single
re-used  bag (e.g. designate one the IMV bag, another the Blue Batak,
etc)?
I have noticed a definite residual aroma after a week of storage and wonder
whether or not that may have any effect on subsequent beans stored therein.
Alternatively, I suppose I could return to my glass jar storage method
(thoroughly washed Bonne Maman jam jars which are very popular in my
household worked well in the past) but I am committed to creating the
optimal environment for my hard  earned beans.  Any advice appreciated!
