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.
