I have 3, gallon freezer bags of nugget, cascade, and chinook. Been in a freezer for a week. Free.

Hey John,
Did you dry the hops before you put them it the freezer?
I harvested my Cascade about two weeks ago, I picked 15 pounds of wet hops. They dried down to 3 pounds dried. Drying and then vacuum sealing in 2oz. packs before storing them in the freezer works well for me.
My Nugget didn't do that well this year picked 4 pounds wet dried down to 1 pound dried.
Did you brew with any of your wet hops?
