I have harvested several ounces of hops from my vines this year and I want to use them as wet or fresh hops. Is it okay to vacuum seal them without drying them first then throw them in when I need them?
I sure hope it is, cause they are in my freezer right now all vacuum sealed up.

What's done is done. Just use them fairly soon...month maybe two at the most. Freezing them wet reduces the shelf life. Also understand that when they thaw, there may be some cellular damage from the ice. They will probably look a bit mushy, but the brew kettle shouldn't care.
