Now that I'm a) unemployed and b) all-grain brewing a lot of English session beers to avoid buying beer until I start the new job, I considered asking for the most expensive ingredient (hops) for Christmas from the folks. I thought about 1# each of First Gold (bittering/finishing), Fuggles (finishing), and EKG (finishing). These come from HopsDirect in large, vaccum sealed bags. How do I store them at home? Just ziplock bags, in the freezer? This seems like they'd almost certainly get freezerburn, etc. How long can they stay fresh in the freezer once opened? If I'm not going to use these in 3 months (I'm not...closer to 6, probably) should I just keep buying by the oz? Any expensive solution (i.e., buy an awesome vacuum sealer) isn't no the table as...well, the whole jobless thing. Would appreciate any/all advice!
