A long time. At least several months. Probably well over a year.

I have taken to using heavy plastic bags that a friend gave me. A bit difficult sometimes to get a seal but through patience they work. Saves a mint on buying those expensive foodsaver bags.

I put mine in the freezer. I ordered some from Hops direct and they just arrived too. I'm a bit disappointed. Their web site said the Cascade was 5% AA, but the ones that arrived are 4.2% AA which is the lowest Alpha percentage I have ever seen for Cascade hops.

Weird, mine said they were 6.9%. Do they have different varieties laying around or what?
