It's subtle, but the...

That's more then enough time. I start drinking beers like that much sooner then 8 weeks AFTER end of fermenation. Honestly, the vast majority of my ales in that range are at their prime 6-8 weeks...

I wasn't contesting anything you said. And yes, I agree the C02 that gets dissolved into solution doesn't "magically" stay there.

There's a lot of misunderstanding about how C02 gets into beer and the temperatures at which Co2 is retained in beer vs. the headspace. The C02 by itself in one bottle of beer, at 0PSI pressure would...

In general yes. I follow a simple rule. The yeast and the wort you put it into should both be at or just below your desired pitch temp at the time of pitching.
