Heat, light and oxygen are the three evils on hops. To avoid these three I have used the following technique for years.
I take a 16 ounce disposible PET water bottle, flush with CO2, pour one pound of pellet hops in, cap with a ball lock carbonation cap, then pressurized to 15psi with CO2. Toss them into the freezer. Take them out and pour what I need, flush and repressurize with CO2.
I will have several bottle in the freezer at any time ready to use. Some varieties of hops that I use infrequently may sit for a year or more in these bottles. The rest of the hops remain in their mylar sealed bags till ready to use. All these hops remain in good condition with this technique.
I think that's a GREAT Idea.
