Again it depends on the style. If you make a dry hopped pale ale and aged it for 6months your going to lose your hop aroma. Generally the higher the alcohol content the longer the aging. Some folks around here just made a mild and I believe it was kegged or bottled after 10 days, ready to drink!
err it was an ale kit i bourght and i Tom Caxton and i only have me instruction leaflet and it says on there to leave for 14 days my question was just realy to see if it makes it tast better if you get me lol
Its not my falt the button told me to do it !?!? :@)
If it has stopped fermenting, then you are going to want to re-rack it and bottle it like the directions say. This is probably not a beer that is going to age very well, it will only oxidize and spoil if you try to age it for more than a month.
