Ferment time

So I tried my first attempt at splitting a recipe. Besides getting the worst burn on my hand that I’ve ever had it appears to have gone well. I split a 6 gallon wort To 3 gallons. I have it in a 5 gallon carboy. You’re supposed to ferment for 2 weeks. Is that still a good timeframe for half a batch or do I need to shorten my time? One problem is that my beer thief isn’t long enough so I have to make a guess at when I should bottle.

Thanks in advance.


don’t shorten the ferment time. just add a piece of tubing to the bottom of the thief so you can reach the wort.

Thanks for the great advice.
