Maybe put them in large zip lock freezer bags? Coffee or mint in the outer bag can help too. I remember that from the highschoolzoic era...

Well,hey,ya gotta go with what works. Hops do smell rather like all this hybred stuff they grow nowadays. So the same ideas should work.

I recieved 8 lbs in the mail and all the sender did was wrap the bricks of hoops in brown paper and put them in a big box and into the mail. It smelled wonderful!
