I have a Belgian triple going and I was wondering how long should I leave it in the secondary. my secondary is a glass carboy.

Until it tastes so good that you want to drink it

I have a tripel fermenting right now in primary and I plan to leave it in 5 gal secondary carboy for at least 2 months if not more. They only get better with age.

The trippels I've made tend to peak around 6 to 8 months. If you can wait that long.

That certainly helps.

A good pipeline is a beautiful thing. It really helps when you need to give your brews some time. I brew a lot of Belgians and they really do improve with age. So let the beer sit and enjoy it when it is good and ready.
