Default Trippel recipe ctitique

My wife and I are expecting our second child in July/August. She is not a beer drinker, but does like some Belgians. I have wanted to brew a belgian for awhile, and I think this is the perfect opportunity. I have been toying with a few recipes, and styles, but am having a hard time deciding ... for some reason I am a little intimidated. I have decided to try my hand a trippel. I want to use mostly what I have on hand, with the exception of picking up some belgian pils malt .... this is what I came up with, what do you think?

Might be a little too malty for a triple. Might want to cut the munich back some. Also need some more sugar. Double it. A triple should be bone dry...

Grain bill looks better. Munich is OK (IMO) but not 2lbs. I've used a lb of the stuff. Give this grain bill a shot and adjust next batch if you think it needs it...

Grain bill has changed some on this. I am going with all MO, because I didn't have time to get to the lhbs to get the pilsener.

I still have a few questions about this:
Just out of curiosity, how long should this age? I know bigger beers need more time, but this is pretty simple, not a very complex recipe ... not sure if that even makes a difference.

Should I bottle, or keg this. I was planning on kegging it, but I'm not sure which is best. I may do a mix. Bottle a few bottles, and keg the bulk of it ... what do you think?
