How fresh do hops have to be?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Like many products, fresher is better, but hops do store very well in freezers. Properly stored, hops can be good for several years. All our hops that we repackage are nitrogen-purged at packaging time and packed in light-proof bags to preserve them for as long as possible. Keep them in the refrigerator or a freezer for long-term storage.
What is the shelf life of pellet hops?
DENNIS C on Nov 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi there,
Hops can be stored for at least a year if stored in an airtight container in the freezer. If they start to smelly cheesy, that means that they have gone bad. Cheers!
