Default Hopsdirect!

Ok so first of all thank you guys for not warning me how big 4lbs of hops are! I ordered from HopsDirect and my order came today. Tonight I am cooking 5 pounds of meat to make room in my freezer! These bags are huge! I should be putting these giant silver bags in my freezer right?

Lol!
I take it you ordered 4lbs of leaf hops.
I got 2 lbs of pellets and I am still catching hell from SWMBO.
And yes the freezer is a good place for them.

Yes 4 lbs of leads! I was expecting a box about the size of the priority mailers! I should have remember how big an oz of a similar plant was, but the calculations never took place in my mind. I am going to throw so much of this in my beer.

I think like a dozen people already warned about the size of the leaf hops, you just must have missed it. If you search in the past hopsdirect threads there were a few people who mentioned the large size of the leaf hop bags.
Now you'll just have to do a giant double IPA this weekend to make room.

Would a pound of cascade be too much for a 5 galloner?!?! The quadruple IPA is on its way. Just kidding I cant even hit 70% efficiency, I would spend the rest of my money acquiring they grain.

This is the primary advantage to fridge/freezer kegerators.

This is a wonderful day. I am full up on freezer capacity from hops and I got a 5lb co2 tank on craiglist for 20 bucks!

get a food saver. i broke my pound bags up into 2 ounce vac packs and it takes up probably 75% less space. plus they're vacuum sealed so they'll stay fresher longer.

I thought one pound of whole flower was a lot. Pellets all the way for me now.
