Hey guys, from earlier in the post, how off will 2010 Saaz be right now? A couple of AAU's? Or several?They can't lose a lot of AA%, since they don't have much to begin with! I have a pound of pellets in the freezer that I won't worry about using. Pellets - not much to worry about. Whole hops would lose more, still not much to worry about. As far as the bitterness, it is always a guess as to the AA going in, even using that printed number on the bag.
If you want to buy fresh European hops, the time to buy is the first of the year. Takes a while for shipping and customs.
