It will be ready to drink much earlier than that, but I only have one tap and I don't drink a ton, so it takes me about a month to finish a keg. September was a American wheat, October is Oktoberfest ale, November is a pumpkin ale, December is the altbier, and January is a sweet stout. I have them all brewed and kegged already.
My routine is after my primary of a few weeks, keg them, gas them for a week, disconnect, and let them sit in the fridge until it's time to hook 'em up. It's working pretty good so far.
