Grinding coffee beans stored in a frozen bean cellar without defrosting?

I plan to move the beans to storage 9 days after roasting, which is close to optimal in my experience. I use a Gene Cafe roaster, and ~9 days after roasting usually works well for both darker roasts (where it's the end of their "prime") and lighter ones (where it's the beginning).

Perhaps the biggest factor in grinding frozen beans might be if frozen too soon post roast that they might not have had sufficient time to degas and properly age to optimal taste.

1953 Gaggia Classica 1 Group

I forgot to note two additional things from yesterday. as I was cleaning the piston I noted there was a decent amount of play between the rack piece screwing into the piston and the rack itself.
