I'm curious if anyone has ever used frozen fresh hops, and how long they last in the freezer. I found some in the back of my freezer (still vacuum sealed) that are probably two years old. Are they any good?

I'm tempted to just brew a simple pale ale just to use them up, but if there's a high probability of freezer burn or off flavors, there's not much point in investing the time.

I used year old frozen hops. They are perfectly fine.
