Read up on microbes, you cannot refrigerate them. Or suffocate them.
I am surprised the food web people aren't all over holganix.
There is a great deal of mythology regarding microbes and the idea that freezing them destroys the populations is certainly one of them... Our soils freeze solid every winter and as soon as the soil begins to thaw, we can smell the bacterial action that begins immediately... an the smell changes as the soil warms/dries/soaks/etc.

Never heard of 'suffocating' a bacteria before either... in bottles of stagnant water, anaerobic bacteria will dominate the scene, but as soon as you dump it out onto the soil aerobic microbes will begin to grow...
