Default Beer ready / freezer back ordered / need advice

I've got a 5 gallon batch of Porter that has been in primary for 3 weeks and secondary for 3 days with the expectation that my GE 7.0 cf freezer would be here tomorrow. I've cold crashed the beer for clarity. Is it too late to bottle condition or should I just keg it and let garage temps control beer temp? It's in the 20s to mod 40s in Michigan now.

Thanks for any advice.

Sorry, forgot to mention the freezer has been backordered and won't be here until Jan 3.

Either/or! You can definitely keg it and let it sit (as long as it doesn't freeze), or you can bottle it.
