So I have these hops I want to use in an IPA next week. The hops are being stored in a small plastic ziplock bag. Will they be ok in the ziplock bags until next week or should I vaccum seal them?

Are these fresh,hpme grown hops? Did you dry them first? If yes,press the air out of the bag & pop'em in the freezer.

They're just hop pellets I bought at the store.

vac sealed would be best, but if you keep them cold & remove most of the air, the ziplock will suffice
