I'm moving out and, since I don't have a new apartment yet, a lot of my stuff is going to be in storage for about a month. I have several pounds of hops in the freezer, all vacuum sealed—do you think it will be alright if they're put in my storage container? It'll be dark, and they're sealed, so really all I'm worried about is the temperature.

You would be better off keeping them cold. Find a friend with a freezer or at least a fridge.

If the hops are vacuum sealed, it shouldn't be a big problem to store them in storage. If it's sealed in a transparent bag, keep it dark.
I don't kwow how hops are stored in the shops here, but in our country they aren't put in a frige or freezer (but they are vacuum sealed).

Are you going to live in your storage container for the month?

If not just store them where you are living.

Heh, well I'm not sure where I'll be living—I'll likely be moving around a lot.

Luckily, I remembered my parents have a nearly empty freezer I can use, so I stuck them in there.

You stuck your parents in the freezer?
