Let me tell you about bigger beers. Lazy LLama's drawing says it best.
I have a 1.090 OG Belgian strong that took 3 months just to carb, and at 9 months is starting to lose the rocket fuel taste....I am not going to touch any more of them til they are a year old. I only have about 6 or 8 bottles left, it was a somall 2.5 gallon experimental batch.
Personally I would let that bad boy sit in secondary for 2-3 months and then bottle it, and plan on it needing a couple more months to bottle condition....and then you woull have a beew worthy of the name stone vertical epic....which are beers meant to be cellared and even tested vertically....
Get brewing other, lesser strength beers that won't require as long as a conditioning time, so you can give this one the time it needs.
You won't be sorry.
