Delay in bottling?

My dad and I were supposed to bottle tomorrow but because of his schedule and mine, we aren’t able to bottle until next Friday. We brewed a 5 gallon extract bourbon barrel porter kit from NB. Tomorrow would be 3 weeks from addition of the bourbon and oak chips. By the time we bottle, it will be 4 weeks. Instructions say 1-2 weeks after that addition. Are we going to run into any problem or off flavors by letting it sit longer? Thanks!

Not at all… I’ve been known to put off bottling for months. When I added oak and whiskey, I waited two months before bottling. Age is your friend on big beers.

Thanks! I figured it would be okay but I’m a little OCD. Guess a porter isn’t really a delicate beer and it shows no signs that anything has gone wrong and temp is constant 68 so all is well. It hit target FG when I transferred to secondary so it’s just conditioning more.
