To keep your dried hops looking great it is best not to get them wet and to keep them out of direct sunlight, which will cause them to lose their vibrancy. Handle with care as they can be brittle. If you have your dried flowers near heat, like above a radiator, it will dry them further and make them more brittle. If well looked after your dried hops will last for months and even years. Some of our regular customers like to replace their hops each year during the hop picking season.
