Is there a guideline for the length of time certain beers need to sit in the bottles before they are drinkable?
2 weeks is typical for carbonation. But 3-4 weeks isn't uncommon. Many more weeks may be necessary for the flavors to balance for the beer to get really good. Just keep sampling it and notice the changes at it ages. Like a lot of things, it just depends. It'll be ready when it's ready and not a moment sooner.
