How long in the freezer?

    I have so much tight zip lock bags in the freezer that I suspect that there are some that sit there since 6 months or so.
    What to think about that, despite the taste that is obviously affected?

    I couldn’t see how Kava would be effected any differently than any other sort of food in a frozen state. Food is generally believed to last indefinitely in a frozen state but obviously will exhibit, “freezer burn,” symptoms. As long as the Kava was stored relatively quickly after use I’d say the worst issue you will run into is strange tasting Kava but I find almost all Kava out of the freezer strange tasting anyways.

    You can keep dried kava in a ziplock bag outside of the freezer in a cupboard for a couple of years without noticeable deterioration. In ziplock bags inside a freezer I would have thought several years more wouldn't make significant difference.
    I wouldn't worry about it - ziplock bags are amazingly effective things.

    Just to clarify, my post was assuming the frozen Kava was in fact used makas.

    Yes. Used maka dried up from aluball or strong kneeding from trad prep. I always try to dry them up the more I can, just as casual manner.
