Ok,I'll repeat my mantra once again. 3 weeks at 70F is the average time an average gravity beer takes to carbonate. But conditioning time is a bit slower,by a week or two. So they're best at 4-5 weeks at 70F.
Then,at least one week in the fridge ( I set mine for 47F) for the co2 in the head space to be absorbed by the beer. It's not a quick process in my experience. Also,two weeks in the fridge gives thicker head,& longer lasting carbonation. Not to mention,as soon as the bottled beer cools down overnight,any chill haze possible will show up,& take a couple days of that week to settle.
And the finer bubbles/head is what most breweries/brewers find desirable. Soda pop head & bubbles are generally signes of week,imature carbonation that signals the need for more time at room temp.
