I have had luck with some blonde ales being carbed after 2 wks and some Brown ALes and Stouts that took 2 months.

3 weeks at 70 degrees and then 1 week in the fridge and check back then.
How far on either side of 70 can I go? Directly on top of my freezer is 78 degrees. I could put the cases on racks on top with a cover. I might be able to adjust the temp. by opening the cover.

I checked it today and it is holding steady at 71 degrees. I guess I'll let it stay there for a few weeks then replace it with a HONEY ALE i have in the fermenter now.

I made a fantastic Pecan American Ale. The key to pecans, nuts etc is roasting them several times to get the oil out, then add to your grain bag. You can also boil them for about 2 mins, drain and add vodka to them and soak for at least 2 weeks. Then filter the Vodka of particles. Put the liquid in the freezer for a few hours and skim the oil off the top. Add the Vodka to the secondary about 4 days before bottling. It is vital to use Carapils to retain the head.

I only toasted them once for 10 min it clearly didn't do the job of getting the oils all out, the beer was complete nastiness, I had to dump it.

I opened one after two more weeks at 72 degrees and it was fully carbonated


Thanks for all the help.
