I think the advice is to put them in the freezer once opened, and in the airless container they came in, resealed to some degree. The whole point being to exclude as much oxygen as possible.

That is my interpretation, anyway.

The last time Shaun at the HBC had a hop clear out, I bought about 17 x 100g of 2015-ish hops, but these are all just in the garage until opening time. As the hops I use are mainly English sort of hops, I have no doubt that they will be fine. I was possibly slightly "merry" at the point of ordering, but such is the under-current of a Forum like this, after all.

There is a lot to be said for ordering stuff for between 1-3 brews at a time, but that is not my preference, as I like to waste time jogging around and contemplating my next beer(s).
