OK, so I work two days a week for my LHBS shop and, I was told something shocking. All the hop plugs are going bye bye.
These have been frozen for some time, but appear to be in good shape. My rule in the past has always been, if it's green - it's in. If it's brown, no way!
So, is that a good rule of thumb to follow? I have been teaching a few friends to grow beer for the past few years and we can do a TON of brews (can you say mega IPA!!!).
We immediately put them in another freezer, they are also vacuum sealed (most in foil packs, so no light either).
Between that and two-row for thirty five bucks, I think I have to start boiling!!!
