So I had these 2007 Tettnanger Pellets that were rated at 7.1% Alpha and tasted the hydro sample yesterday. Let me just say that it didn't taste like ~70 IBU's. I made a correction to the alpha (6%) and now it seems closer to what it should be.

Anyone else have problems with maintaining the alpha of their hops? These were vacuum sealed in a freezer that is maintained at ~5 degrees F.
