I brewed a hoppy wheat beer 3 weeks ago today. I had planned on bottling it today but it doesn't look like I will get to it until next Saturday. I wouldn't think I would have any issues bottling it 4 weeks in, but thought I would ask those who have had similar experiences.

Sooner is better for hoppy brews, but you'll be just fine. 4 weeks in isn't late at all!
