A few days ago I bottled a Berliner Weiss that had one redeeming quality, it was wet. Not a hint of sour, and some off tastes that I can only hope will be cleaned up in the bottle. I was thinking about putting this away at room temp for an extended period. Is there a down side to this? I figure at room temp the yeasties and beasties are more likely to turn this into something I can be happy with.

A few weeks at least if not more may be the cure for any problems.

People usually recommend 2-3 weeks in bottles. Just helps mellow out flavors. However on my first brew I cheated at 1 week and loved the results so much only 15 beers made it till 2 weeks!
