Aging pine

We are in the process of putting 6" pine T&G boards on the ceiling and walls of our cabin. I have a vague idea that we are supposed to let it age for ____ period of time before we put a sealer on the wood to prevent it from yellowing with age.
How long should we wait and what should we put on it to stop yellowing?
Thanks,
Don

Dont wait it starts aging right away. If you want it looking like it is now for as long as possible use Acrylic-water base Poly, Oil base poly or any oil product yellows with age. It will still darken no matter what you do but not as much. Gloss is clearer than satins so do first coats in gloss, you will need several anyway. [Although for pine it probably wont matter] with gloss.

I have T&G pine on my celing, and in order to match the old and new, I used amber shelac, it made for a good match, cause the varnish or poly finish used back when the house was build had more amber color, I am guessing from the linseed oil used more back then, I used Zinser 3 lb cut right from the can, you can thin it down with denatured achlol, to chage the color a bit, will lighten it up, but not darken, multiple coats works for that.
