Now the rule of thumb is 3 weeks at 70 F. I know that. I also know the higher alcohol content, the longer aging. Yet again, darker beer means longer aging necessary to reach peak flavor. Well I have a weak (4%) milk stout. Do I need to age longer than 3 weeks. It is a dark beer, yet it is a weak beer.

So what do you all suggest based on past experiences?

I would just go by taste. I have a 4.9% milk stout that was in primary for 7 weeks and secondary for 10 days. Long story as to why this is the case, but still. It was easy drinking from there.
