Yes. Best to vaccum seal first, then freeze. Will last a long time.

Absolutely! I think the majority of us on here store our hops in the freezer. You need to ensure they are in an airtight pouch like a ziploc first though.

I just had 5# hops delivered this afternoon from Hops Direct, so I picked up one of those vacuum sealers and plenty of bags. Into the freezer they'll go tonight!

You better buy another freezer for them, hops multiply in the freezer. I have a feeling you will wearing out Hops Direct.
