I saw in another thread about storing hops; sorry I would have replied there but I could not find it this morning. I was reading about hops of course and ran across this website: http://oregonhops.org/culture2.html
Near the bottom you will see notes on drying and storage. They say that you should fry the hops before freezing them not freeze and then dry. I know that came from C.P. but this is the Oregon Hop Commision website.
LMAO.......hold on.........That is funny!!! Sorry about that I should have read over my post first that should read dry the hops before freezing, LOL!! Thanks Evan
