I have 1 lb. of Progress hops on the way for a Hobgoblin clone. What is a good way to store the remainder without a vacuum sealer?

I usually just get those zip lock bags bags from the supermarket, compress all the air out, zip it up, store it in the fridge in the cheese compartment

I agree except the hops need to go into the freezer.

Don't store them next to butter. That is my 0.02 worth. SHMBO not best pleased when she went to make scones!

What's wrong with herbal butter?

So I am revamping this thread as I have some questions on this subject. How long will hops last in a ziploc bag in the freezer? Also, should I wrap a rubberband around the bags in order to further diminish the possibility of oxidization?
