Hop Jar

Hop Jar

I had been concerned lately that there were off flavors coming from my hops. Part of me was thinking, maybe I just wasn’t using them properly, but I was using them the same way I did before when I experienced success. I knew storing them in the freezer was good for preventing spoilage, but then it me – frozen foods can often take on the ‘flavor of the freezer.’

Wrap it up tight – a mason jar is good for an air tight seal. If I didn’t brew every week, I would slip the jar into a vacuum sealer for better protection.
