Default Brittle Hops, After Harvest?

So i did a "mini" harvest about 2 weeks ago because my Cascade cones were starting to brown on the edges. After dehydrating them for about 8 hours, i threw them into a baggie and in the freezer. I look at them now and there is a bunch of yellow powder (lupulin im assuming?) at the bottom of the bag and the hops seem to have fallen apart.

Thoughts?

Same happens when buying in bulk...

If you measure them out in oz or something like that just give the larger bag a shake to get the lupelin mixed in with other cones.
