Hops Harvest 2012: Drying and storing

After drying out in the hot garage for 4 days (I added a fan after day two), the first round of Cascade hops were dry and ready for packaging last night.

After drying I had ~3 ounces of hops. I bagged them in 1 ounce increments so I didn't have to open more than I needed, and used the vacuum sealer so that they will keep for a long time.

Here are some photos from last night:
All dry.

Look at all that lupulin. Wow!
Into the freezer they go.
