My question is how long will they last in the freezer. I usually use fresh Hops to Dry Hop.
If you vacuum sealed them, they'll last a long time. In just regular zip-loc bags, not quite as long.
I just used some vacuum sealed cascade 2011 today. They smelled great, and were nice and green. When the aroma starts to fade, or they turn color, or start to smell "off", then it's too late to use them.
