https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/recipe/view/215636/rgv-rye is my most frequent brew. It consistently takes about 5 weeks in the bottle before it tastes good, and then it suddenly blossoms into a very well-balanced, layered delicacy. Three weeks later, it's bland and not worth drinking any more. I expect the hop flavor to develop (and eventually degrade), but I'd like to get a more generous window of acceptability. Any ideas how I can increase the shelf life (in either or both directions)?
