Here's a post I made last year:
"I planted around 100 seeds just for an experiment in late April. I had read about the fridge method to, however my results were completely opposite of what should have happened.
I did 5 different stages with 20 seeds each. All of them had a 24 hour soak in water in the fridge. I planted 20 with no more time in the fridge, 20 with 1 week, 20 with 2 weeks and so on. The seeds with only the soak and 1 week had 75% germination while the others had a obviously declining germination rate. If I remember correctly the 4 week soaked seeds only had 2 that were good.
I would suggest doing something like this with a lot of seeds. They're far from expensive. Just make sure you kill the male plants so they don't knock up any of the females that someone around you might have."
I didn't keep any of them. I had to move and hops that were almost certainly junk were the least of my worries.
