Drink the first few slowly if you can. They'll be great after a week in the fridge.

I would try to let it ago at least a week. The CO2 will dissolve back into the beer and carb a little better. Also, it will allow the yeast some time to drop out and let the flavors mellow. But, if you can't wait, enjoy the first bottle!

Waited overnight? 30 minutes in the freezer and it's ready to drink!

What style did you make? I agree with the rest, try to leave as many as you can for a few weeks.

But absolutely enjoy some tonight (and this weekend)!
