As the hop industry continues to expand in the Northeast, research is needed into best practices for processing and storing hops. While there are established systems for hop storage on large scale farms in the Pacific Northwest, there is a shortage of information on the systems being employed by growers in the Northeast. Many hop growers are choosing to vacuum-seal their hops in plastic bags. The goal of this project was to determine the effect of temperature on storage quality of dried, vacuum-sealed hops.
