Planned to have a picking and brewing party for some non-brewing friends, but time got away from me. We're leaving town and wouldn't be able brew for at least two weeks, maybe three. Hops (Cascades) don't look like they'll last that long, they look ready to pick now.
So my question is if I pick my hops today and store them in paper bags in a cool, dry spot, will they be good for two weeks? Or would I be better off putting them into freezer bags and freezing? Won't have time to dry them before I leave.
