Im making a double ipa with only Belma hops plan on using 6 oz during mash and boil and dry hopping with 2 oz or maybe more depending on how strong or weak the flavors are. U guys who already brewed got any tips on the strength of the flavor? I see some posts on the flavor profile but none about how strong it is

How is everyone storing their hops? I've been using mason jars and putting them in the fridge. Is this a problem? I use them fairly quickly and wouldn't have them sitting in there for more than 6 months at most. I don't mind a little loss in potency but should I invest in a vaccuum sealer instead? I'd rather not if the mason jars are ok, but would like to have them stay fresh for at least 6 months...

I vacuum seal mine... I can assure no or little oxidation. Not sure Mason jars will give you the same assurance unless you purge with CO2..

I vac seal my hops and store them in the deep freezer.

If you put yours in mason jars and store them in the fridge; I believe you will be doing just fine, sir!


You might want to invest in a vac sealer eventually though. They are great for buying hops in bulk. They are great for tons of other stuff too. A Vac sealer is one of those things I wasn't sure if I would use. Once I got it, I use it all the time.

I have the Food Saver Mini. It's cheap and works like a champ.

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

I seal in 4oz packages. I hardly ever use less than that anyway. I can always seal the remainder back up.

1 - 2oz packages .. That's a lot of work

I couldn't cram any more in my bags. What size are yours?
