Even storing a fully dried spool in a vacuum bag with desiccant pouches allows it to absorb enough moisture to suffer damaging hydrolysis when heated to printing temperature... Not to mention the steam bubbles :/ I print with the stuff infrequently enough that making/buying a filament dehydrator with spool holders and a feed gate is overkill, but I hate having to plan to put the spool in the food dehydrator for 8-12 hours before running a print :p.
