I have completed the batch as follows.

1 can Coopers Canadian Blonde
1000g gold light DME
500g of dextrose
Pitched yeast at 21°c
21L total.

First reading was 1.042

My question is this.

I wait for my fermentation to complete, 2-3 weeks, based on 2 days of the same hydrometer testing. Once fully fermented, can I leave it in my primary for say.. Another 1-3 weeks? Will this improve anything? Is this a waste of time? Or will I get the same effect if I just bottle and let it condition for 2-3 weeks in the bottle?

I have completed 6 brews, just want to maximize flavour and depth.
