I watched this video and really enjoyed it.  But, as a new home roaster
it raised a couple of questions.
He mentions storing his beans in the freezer.  I thought this was a bad
idea.  Have things changed?
He also used beans he'd just roasted to brew coffee.  I thought it was
better to let them sit for at least a day.
Was he just taking "poetic license" for the show, or is there validity
to what he said?
Thanks,
Mike

I am surprised that he didn't mention resting of coffee, but this  
little webisode really had some great info and he did start it out on  
the subject of homeroasting and it was cool to see those sweet marias  
greens.  I do think Mike McKoffee has done some tests with freezing  
greens, not sure what the result of that experiment was.  would like  
to see this guy do a full length episode about coffee, I suppose he  
could give Alton Brown a run for his money!

If you unplug the freezer, remove the door, and then store it in a
room with less than direct sunlight at 55-75 degrees, then storing
beans in a freezer would make perfect sense.
This is but my opinion.  Your mileage may vary.

As I reported June past 5 month home freezer vac stored greens test
suggested while not only not damaging to greens the acidity seemed to be
better maintained than vac stored at room temp. (tested Moki's Kona greens) 
As far as brewing right after roasting it won't hurt, and will be better
than most "out there", but IMO the cup won't be nearly as complex as rested.
Test for yourself brewing some every 12 hours from roast out to minimum 5
days!
