Default Longest time you waited b4 drinking your hombrew

So I've seen people talk about aging their beers and whatnot. Just curious to see how long ppl have stored their homebrews for. So...what's the longest time you've waited before opening up a bottle?

Tried a bottle of barley wine at 9 months. Still needs to age more though.

Three months for some 7.5%+ beers. Since I don't usually brew anything strong, I usually wait 10-14 days in the keg before drinking...

10 months on a doppelbock. Still wasn't any good, so I dumped it.

7 months for an Oktoberfest. It was my best beer ever. Unfortunately it was made for a party and I only had about 4 pints of it before it was gone. This March I'm going to make 15 gal of it.

If you are asking about first sample - 1 day. If you are asking oldest bottle - 12 years. I also have a bottle from my first batch which I brewed something like 27 years ago! I don't think I want or will open that one!
