It sounds like the recipe is calling for bulk aging. In such a case, I would rack to a 5 gallon carboy, and free up my primary fermenter for the next batch. Just watch out for sanitation and oxidation.
But if you leave it in the primary, two months total is probably enough. Depends on your stamina - how long can you hold your breath?
