Default Gifted 20+ pounds of hops from neighbor I don't know

I was brewing in my front yard today and a neighbor came over and gave me a bunch of hops because he's moving. Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe, Amarillo etc. He also gave me a stir plate and 5 mature hop plants in 20 gallon containers, ready to harvest. I love my neighborhood in Portland!

Holy ****! That's one hell of a score. I wish I could get that lucky every now and again.

Wow, Amarillo is really hard to find. Sounds like it is time for several batches of IPA.

Brew some CDA, it'll be a tribute to your neighborhood in Cascadia!

Now get brewing....

I have brewed in the front yard a number of times, and all I got was "Are you making meth or something?". Congrats, good sir!

+1 except they would have already drank the keystone and it would just be the cans, plus broken lawn mowers.

The Amarillo are from 2009 but they are pellets in one pound bags that are vacuum sealed and nitrogen purged. Are they still good?
