Two weeks, or as long as you can possibly stand it.

Run to the liquor store and LHBS. Get drunk and brew another batch...not necessarily in that order.

dankster - ElP's '2 week plan' is a good guide - as it nears finishing in secondary get your primary going again with something else!

Dankster, we all feel your pain. The only cure is to brew more. Which means you will need another carboy or two. Welcome to our happy hell.

I have two cases bottled in the bedroom (basement is too cold to carbonate in the winter) that I have to look at every day. They have only been in there a week and are not nearly ready to drink. It is torture. I brewed another batch over the weekend that's still in the primary. Life is hell is right.
