How should i store my hops?

PDF version

Hop quality is largely affected by prolonged exposure to heat, oxidisation or light. We recommend that you keep your hops stored in a refrigerated environment in their protective Aluminium (Nitrogen Flushed) foils. There are differing opinions on what temperature is optimal for storage but it is generally advisable that hops be stored as close to freezing temperature as possible.

Hop pellets are inherently quite stable so short periods of storage in general refrigeration (+2 Celsius) is also fine if that is your current storage solution and you intend to use the hops in a reasonable timeframe.
