Well after starting AG and quickly getting into getting a grain mill and all i'm starting to look into stockpiling ingredients for making my own recipes and brewing whenever i want. I saw on midwest's site they have bulk orders of hops (24 oz. of 4 different varieties!) and have 3 different types you can buy. I was thinking of buying one of each which would give me a good variety of hops but unsure how long it would take to use all those hops. If i keep them in the freezer how long can i expect all those hops to last?
If they are not vacuum sealed they will lose some bittering qualities slowly over time. I vacuum seal and store at about 0F and just going by taste, I'd say that doing both of those retains all most, if not all, qualities for at least 12-18 months.
