Default How much time in bottle?

Just a quick question on how much time in the bottle is good. I made an IPA about a month ago, a week and a half in the primary and 2.5 weeks in the secondary and I'm going to bottle it tomorrow, in hopes it will be done for Christmas. How many days in the bottle until it is carbonated enough?

3-4 weeks is needed to carbonate in a bottle. Keep them at 70 degrees as well. Sorry I won't make for Christmas or New Years.

Resist temptation and wait 3 weeks. Give them a chance to carb properly.

I'm sure everyone's taste in "whats good" varies wildly.

Our first batch of Alaskan Amber just hit 3 weeks in the bottle at around 70 degrees. We sampled a bottle at 2 weeks and I was happy but also really bummed out.

Happy in that we brewed beer ! Bummed that it was pretty "sharp tasting" ... now just one week later --- much better !! I'll let it go 2 more weeks before I store it in the cold garage (40-50 degrees).
