[Homeroast] After roast storge

I have used several methods, but currently I put a fresh roast into an 
AirScape canister (available from SM's) with the inner lid handle up 
(which allows it to vent).  This handle has a couple of tiny holes that 
allow CO2 out but minimizes airflow.  After 24 hours, I close the inner 
handle to seal it and put the top sealed lid on until I'm ready to 
transfer the beans to my grinder hopper.  My rest periods after the 
first 24 hours of degassing range from a couple of days to perhaps 4-5 
for light roast Ethiopians.  My grinder hopper has a lid which minimizes 
circulation as well, though of course it is not sealed.
