Default All-Grain - Blimey's ESB

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Windsor (dry)
Yeast Starter: none
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: Windsor (dry)
Batch Size (Gallons): 6
Original Gravity: 1.068

Boiling Time (Minutes): 60

Tasting Notes: see below

I ended up hitting 1.068 on this beer, and it was a glorious accident. It kept a strong malty backbone and had a hint of alcohol hotness to it while still retaining the typical English phenolics.

This looks great. After how long in the keg/bottle after secondary fermentation is it no longer green and has good drinkability? I'm asking because I made a recipe VERY similar to this (except I use a small amount of biscuit malt) and am wondering how long I should keep it in my keg after secondary before serving it.

I had this on tap 4-5 weeks after it was brewed. I see no reason why it would need longer than that.

Got this one 15mins into the boil now. It's smelling mighty good so far, and I'm loving the color.

If I wanted to use a liquid yeast, any recommendations?

FWIW - I'm thinking of brewing this and oaking in the secondary. I have a few ounces of american light toasted oak cubes I've soaking in JD since I first used them in a bourbon porter.
