I had occasion to try this when I had some pinto beans soaked but had to leave town on a family matter before I cooked the beans. What I did was drain the beans and put them in the freezer compartment for about a week. I put them in a Rubbermaid container. When I returned and cooked the beans I put cold water in the pressure cooker, put the frozen beans in the cooker and waited until the water boiled to close the cooker and cook the beans. They came out just fine. If you leave the beans in a container like I did for a very long time in a frostless refrigerator freezer compartment or freezer the heating/ cooling cyles to defrost would slowly dessicate the beans and you would
eventually wind up with dried beans. If you wanted to store them for a long time in this state I would store them in water which would freeze
and protect the beans from drying.
