I just got an Oatmeal stout from Homebrewusa.com and im not sure how long to age it for?

i want it done by christmas but im sure thats not possible since im brewing it tonight. im getting a kegerator xmas morning and wanted to use it for that so mainly im wondering how long to age it for and if i should age it in a secondary or just in the primary.

also how long does force carbonating generaly take?

well you are definitely not going to make it by Christmas. minimum 2 weeks fermenting. minimum 2 weeks aging. i would just rack from your primary to your keg after fermentation.

right on both counts. age in the keg and keep it in your closet. then once its carbed cool it to your serve temp for a week.

the colder the beer the less PSI you need to force carb your beer so be careful you don't over carb.

Or just prime it and let it carbonate and age at room temperature.
