I do that. I roll them up and put them in large storage zip lock bags. The packaging may be oxygen barrier but there is no way to effectively reseal them.

I don't have a vacuum sealer. I seal my hops the best I can in zip lock bags. That isn't stopping the aroma from permeating everything in my freezer. All of my food has a hoppy taste to it. I am thinking I either need a vacuum sealer or one of these

1 lb munich 10L
8 oz victory
8 oz white wheat
1 oz cascades FWH and 60 minute boil
1 oz each simcoe and amarillo 15 minutes

1 oz each simcoe and amarillo 5 minutes
Dry hop 2 oz columbus

Mashed 1 hour at 152 F batch sparged at 165F 15 minutes.

The guy making my new tap handle sent me a picture of his work.

I collect chess sets and they are integrated into the design of my man cave. So of course my kegerator has to be integrated in. I am upgrading to a duo tapper. This is the same guy that made my last tap handle.
