Is one brand better than another? "Ziplock" versus "A&P" versus "BJ's"? As long as they're freezer bags ( thicker, I think )?
Actually you may have to experiment with the brands. Plastic breathes and not all "freezer" bags are equal in reducing the air from penetrating. If you have ever compared the vacuum-seal plastic with the baggies, there is a big difference. But, put it this way, Freezer bags are better than the regular bags.
Any bag or recycled container you end up using also must be "food grade". Many of our everyday stuff that we reuse is not.
