    Default storing hemp

    In the past I've frozen leftover hemp seeds but I'm thinking if putting them in a jar and covering them in oil. Anyone tried this

    Great if your hemp was toasted M'lud but if it was just soaked as usual it will still fester due to the water content.

    House opposite us has clearly been used for "storing" hemp. Twice now, when it must have been just ready for us fisher folk, the GMP Tactical Angling Club have come round and taken it all for themselves. Al I can say is Grr!

    Dont give up so easily, people have been storing foodstuffs under oil since the begining of time, the oil acts as a barrier isolating the stored product from the gasses required for fermentation. Do you buy your wet hemp in a tin?

    Sometimes I buy tinned hemp but often I prepare my own from dry seed

    Make a brine solution and put the hemp into it, I believe it should last a long time. I have stored cooked hemp for at least 2 weeks in the water it was cooked in without mucking about with it.

    Perhaps I'm missing something here, but are we talking about what do with cooked hemp after a session ?
    If we are then why not stick it in the freezer which is what I do, and have done so, for donkeys years...

    All my hemp is home cooked and after cooling placed in suitable sandwich bags and stored in my section of the freezer...I take out one or two bags the evening before and it's ready to go next morning! After the session leftovers are re frozen, sometimes several times without any ill effects..

    As I say, I may well be missing something...

    Just a thought, if you soak it in oil would that not make it float?

    I put mine in the freezer.
