Yeah, right. It's more like:

1 Week in the primary (checking on it about 5 times)
2 Weeks in the Secondary (with at least 2-3 taste tests)
1 week in the bottle (if that long).

It's a challenge keeping it three weeks after bottled. I consider myself disciplined if I only drink 10-12 after Week One.
