Default aging

I just got an American ipa and I want to age it a month or two. If I put it in secondary for that length of time will I have a problem with the yeast when I prime and bottle it. I'm afraid my yeast might die and not be able to carbonate my beer. Any answers or suggestions?

You may want to ferment in the lower portion of your suggested temp range. This will slow the little guys down so they have more sugars to feed on over those last few weeks. I've seen many threads talking about fermenting for 8 weeks and have seen few carbonation issues listed.

You can leave it for a year and it will still carb up.

Why do you want to age an american IPA? lot of the aromas will fade, drink you IPAs fresh.

IPA's are best when consumed fresh otherwise you lose all the attributes of an IPA
