Well... I opted for aging in the bottles. I just can't bring myself to dedicate a carboy to it. I bottled up my stout last night and stuck it in the closet. I'll test the first one in December and hold the rest until the new year at least. I had to use all 12oz bottles, because I didn't want my flippies occupied for that long either.

This is the only time I have bottled a full batch in 12oz bottles. (well.. I take that back, there is one 20oz'er and one 32oz'er in addition to the mountain of 12oz'ers.)

What a time consuming process.
