I have strong beers like a barley wine that I bottled last long over a year and taste great. And regular ales 6 months to a year if they don't get consumed by then!

They will store longer if below 60F (cellar temp) barring any microbes that may have entered the beer.

I would recommend after 2 weeks put it in cold storage the colder the better but not in a freezer. Cold storage will help preserve the freshness.
eluterio is online now

Just used the original method for the first time today to bottle an 11% Belgian Dark Strong I made several months ago. Went rather smoothly, however being the first time, I made a mess. Should go much smoother next time.

not having much success with this method, I think my problem may lie with a short fluid tube and not setting my psi to 5,

Same here, I think next time I will do it in a bucket like OP says, and also thinking about cutting the stopper in half so that it doesn't go so far into the bottle, should get less headspace that way. I have 7' beer lines and had no issues with foam.

I can't seem to get anything but half a bottle of foam with this method. I just swapped out my 6 ft lines for 10ft but I've been keeping my PSI down low, around 2-3. Would that be the issue? I have made sure bottles, line and cane are all cold too. Seems like if I were to continue filling until the beer gets to the normal level I will be wasting a lot beer just foaming over.
