Default When's it ready?

I made a hoppy dunkelweisse on 11/21/12
1 lb Munich
1 lb white wheat
1 oz Carafa II

5 grams Pacific Gem at 20 min

Mashed at 158


Will be bottling on 12/7/12.

Do you think this beer will be "better" on 12/19/12 or 1/13/13? These are the two dates I can have it judged by my HBC.

1/13/13 for sure.....

12 days (i.e. 12/19/12) is not even long enough to carbonate properly

I was thinking it should card in a week, but I'm sure you're right.
1/13/13 it is.
