Don't know if this answers your question exactly, but perhaps related. Due to laziness and an aversion to bottling, I left a brown ale (NB Nukey Brown, which I am calling Joe's Garage Brown) in the primary x 8 weeks, maybe 9--who's counting at that point? Finally bottled. After 3 weeks in the bottle, it really tastes very, very good, like really good, but needs to carb up a little more. Given the way extended time in the primary, I expected that this would be the case.
This Saturday will be 4 weeks bottled. At this point, as with all my beers, I tend to try one per week. Once it tastes "right" (and I can't tell ya how I know that), I'll put about 1/2 in the fridge and 1/2 in the basement to cellar. I am as impatient as the next homebrewer, but I am not a heavy drinker (those days are a distant and vague memory), which I suppose works in my favor in terms of conditioning.
Just my experience and what I do. Cheers!
