I tested 2 batches this past weekend that had been bottled a month ago. Both stouts high abv. One was bottled with fresh yeast. It had about the right amount of carbonation after just a month in the bottle.
Batch B had no yeast added and had just the tiniest bit of carbonation after a month. I used very little priming sugar in either one ( 1/4 cup).
Both need longer to age, I have a feeling Batch B(no yeast) will be perfect in 3 or so months. Batch A may be overcarbonated by then. Hard to say! Hope this helps. I would not recommend waiting more than 30 days to bottle.
