Default Hops in Freezer but not air tight

yeah I know old issue.

http://brewingtechniques.com/library....1/garetz.html

I read through this. It sounds like it is not a good idea.

Point is ... I think I am getting some off flavors with my cascade.
I brewed a basic pale with all cascade (the hops in question) to see if I still got the flavor. I think It is a little off. Difficult to explain it.

Anyway.. thoughts?

My question is, why? Seal em up. Cost me around 42 bucks.

7 bucks for quart Mason Jars
20 bucks for a vacuum brake bleeder pump
15 bucks for a foodsaver mason jar sealer
