Default Brittle Hops, After Harvest?

So i did a "mini" harvest about 2 weeks ago because my Cascade cones were starting to brown on the edges. After dehydrating them for about 8 hours, i threw them into a baggie and in the freezer. I look at them now and there is a bunch of yellow powder (lupulin im assuming?) at the bottom of the bag and the hops seem to have fallen apart.


Primary: Nothing
Secondary: DFH Punkin Ale
Bottled/Conditioning: Cigar City Jai Alai IPA Clone, Apple Jack 1.0, Apple Jack 2.0
Drinking: Yakima Blonde (Imperialized), Banana Wheat, Russian Imperial Stout, and anything i can get my hands on
On Deck: Watermelon Wheat, Red Panda Ale, Gluten Free Brown Ale, Mojito IPA, Smoked Pepper Stout

Same happens when buying in bulk...

If you measure them out in oz or something like that just give the larger bag a shake to get the lupelin mixed in with other cones.
