Possibly. What would you be looking to split the 5kg down to?

1kg, 500g packages?

Having done my fair share of vac packing I would urge any swap / group buy to go down the pellet route, trying to split and bag whole = APITA & expensive with bag usage + forward postage with pellets is cheaper & storage thereafter.

Simply Hops has 10kg of Equinox (formerly Experimental 366) for £224.10. That's £2.24 per 100g for hops which are extremely hard to come by. The best price I have seen elsewhere is £5.80 for 100g.
Ingredients: Water, Barley, Hops, Yeast, Seaweed, Blood, Sweat, The swim bladder of a sturgeon, My enemies tears, Scenes of mild peril, An otter's handbag and Riboflavin.

I really like the sound of that. Others I would be really interested in are Centennial, athanum and Mosaic. I can't get enough of them!!
