So I used my randall for the first time yesterday and ran 3-4 gallons through it before the party died. Can I freeze the hops and use them the next time I use the randall or just toss them? I know the hops will keep for a few weeks if you're using the randall sparingly, but wasn't sure what I could do for long term storage.

Or you can freeze them and use them for bittering.

Hop prices have been dropping and are continuing the trend, which makes me wonder why you'd want to bother?

I suppose as David says you can use them for bittering but how would you know what AA% value to assign them? Surely running beer through them is going to carry off some of the Lupulin leaving you with an unknown quanity.
