I would like to keep beans in freezer and just take enough out for a shot or two and grind frozen.
Once the beans are frozen can I just leave a container in the freezer or will continually opening container ruin beans?
The procedure I go thru is much like some have already mentioned. First, I might store a whole bag of beans (never opened) in my freezer until ready to use...I've stored this way for up to two months and never tasted a change in the bean, nor a noticeable change from beginning to end (12 oz. bags lasting about two weeks). I do move these frozen bags to the counter top for 8-12 hours to thaw, don't want condensation in my storage containers. That said, my storage containers are Airscape, and I store at room temperature.
I single dose so this is the part of the procedure I think you're after. I use 2 oz. amber glass jars (can get these on Amazon pretty cheap, I paid $16 for 24 jars). Since I drink three double espressos/flatwhites a day, I weigh out 18 grams (they hold up to 20g) into three jars and place in the freezer. Next day, I just take a jar from the freezer, dump into a steel container so I can WDT, then dump into grinder, grind into pf, and pull your shot...then enjoy! As others have said, you need to weigh somewhere along the line, so why not do it as you single dose your freezer jars! Works for me. Hope it will for you too!
