I just harvest about 8 oz of fresh Cascade hops. I am going to brew tomorrow and use 4 oz of the fresh hops. My question is for the remaining 4 oz. I am going to use them for dry hopping in the secondary. Can I store them somehow until I need to use them (probably in one week) or should I dry them for a couple days, freeze them, and then pull them out the day i need them?

Keepin mind that you need 5-6 times as much wet hops as dried for the same effect. I'd dry and freeze the leftovers. 4 oz. should dry to about 1 oz. or a bit less.
