Default Ordering hops from Europe?

I was told hops should be kept in the freezer until used.
I saw good hop prices on eBay, with free int'l shipping.
So I fear the ~10 day shipping will hurt the hops...

Does this affect the hops ? or is this the common overkill bug that infects us brewers?

Freezing helps extend the life of hops, but hop warehouses are rarely even refrigerated.


Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
