Hops direct ships their hops in a vacuum packed bag. You didn't loose anything in my opinion. Their website says they keep some hops in a walk in cooler for day to day use....but the rest are warehoused. I doubt if it's refridgerated...... plus, it took a week for UPS to ship my hops from the west coast....dude, it didn't come with a ice pack. Your fine.

An extra week from the scheduled delivery?

I'd raise holy hell. You are in ohio not pluto.

We ship stuff everyday here at work UPS and an extra week after the scheduled date would have us using FedEx the next that. That is inconceivable.

My guess would be very little - especially since they are pelleted.
