I'd let it go to 6-8 weeks in the primary and bottle and plan to age it.

Another option is to fill a 3 gallon carboy for a secondary (mine are more like 3.25 gallons) and somehow bottle the rest. It's good to plan around filling the secondary with a little extra to spare when recipe planning if that step is used.

Thanks DSmith.
That's sort of what I was leaning towards. It's in a 5 gallon (really closer to 6) bucket now but since I haven't peeked at it I assume it's still a mostly C02 environment in there. If I were to rack into a 5 gallon carboy...not so much.

My plan was to bottle this when it's ready then age until fall/christmas time...we'll see if I've got the patience
