How much of a PITA is splitting these 1# bags if leaf hops? 2lbs and it looks like a DEA bust.

1.0 pkg American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) [124.21 ml] Yeast 11 -

Est Original Gravity: 1.061 SG
Measured Original Gravity: 1.054 SG
Est Final Gravity: 1.014 SG

Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 6.3 %
Actual Alcohol by Vol: 5.8 %
Bitterness: 75 IBUs
Calories: 178.9 kcal/12oz
Est Color: 7.7 SRM
Racked over to secondary today after 4 weeks of primary. Filtered with a nylon hop bag and Racked onto 3 oz. of Belma, whole hops. It is at the FG of 1.011 . The smack pack worked well and I used a swamp cooler for fermentation. Now with my new chest freezer I will be able to cold crash these leaves out. I cold crashed the primary at 40ish degrees for a week so it was remarkably clear, which was nice as well.

I have to say the flavor is fantastic. It is orange, yet spicy sort of like chinook. If this tastes as good carb'ed as it does right now I will definitely be making it again.

Well as everyone else described very light melon berry quality, for my late additions still had a nice clean bitterness. Seemed to add extra pleasent mouthfeel. I used leaf hops they seemed to be a little browned around the edges, maybe the pellets have better aroma. All things aside if theres any left(havnt checked) im going to order some pellets to sub anywhere I would have used magnum before, for bittering
