3-4 days should be enough- I just wait until the bottles (plastic) are rock hard, then put them in the fridge for a couple of days. This seems to work great.
For creaminess and a "thicker" mouthfeel, you can use a little maltodextrine in your recipe. In a 5 gallon batch, a tablespoon or so can be enough to start with.
