    Awesome thread! I'm going to give this method a shot soon with the two batches I just bottled.

    Two weeks is a bit on the long side when dry hopping at room temperature, imo...Cheers!What is
    your recommendation, sir? This is my first time dry hopping...

    Hey all, just wanted to give everyone a little update...Last night I pulled my hops out of the
    freezer and racked my beer to the secondary. It was tastes and smells amazing from all of the
    fresh hops ...

    Cant hurt to freeze them and retain as much "goodness" as possible. Probably wont hurt to just
    throw them in the fridge either, considering it is only a week or so. Report back on your dry
    hop results...

    Hello all,I just vacuum sealed some homegrown dried out hops I had on hand.My question is, if
    I'm going to use these for dry hopping in a secondary within the next 7-10 days, should I even
    bother free...

    Very "grassy" and vegetal big globs of green mush. :( At least in my experience.Drying them
    first, and then freezing was fine, though.So how should I freeze these bad boys? About 3oz of
    them I'm going...

    Ok so if I have about 7oz at about 80% of their weight (which I would assume they are)...and I
    use half tomorrow to brew with...what should I do with the other half if I want to dry hop in
    3-4 weeks? ...

    No, don't just freeze them. Dry them out by placing on a mesh screen in a warm place until
    totally dry and then freeze them. Or use them in a batch of beer right away. But don't freeze
    wet hops!Well h...

    Use some for the boil and dry the rest for dry hopping. Or just use them all.Yeah I was just
    thinking that. Pretty sure that's the route I'm gonna go.I cut off all of the vines and
    leaves... there's a...

    They look like my Centennials. Not Cascade. But who knows.Typically it's recommended to use
    freshly-picked wet hops within 48 hours, they deteriorate pretty quickly. So brew today, or
    freezer, or dry....
