I agree that you should rack and bulk age. Get it off the yeast cake to avoid any autolysis flavors and add some campden tablets to prevent oxidation while it ages.

you'd need to be looking into "sur lie" or battonage (I think that's spelled correctly), but I also know that you wouldn't normally do that with 71B. I understand that it's a ferment and rack off yeast......

So I'd also go for rack, clear and age......
