I'm not quite sure I understand your question, but if you have hops you should store them in the freezer. All of them.

I don't think it matters much. Just try to squeeze as much air out of the bags as you can before you seal them.

I'd leave them in the big bag until your first use, then I'd break them down into small packages sized to what you would normally use. That way you don't have to keep opening all the hops every time you use some.
