I think what he was looking for was how long does beer need to sit on the yeast cake to clean itself up (diacetyl, acetaldehyde). Thats why he was referring to it in weeks, rather than months.

However, I agree, when you are talking about off-flavors from leaving the beer on the yeast cake too long, you are talking months, not weeks.

I think you are getting into 'how long is a piece of string' terratory here. I have had beers that weren't right till after 6 weeks and then had beers taht I was drinking 7 days after brewing and were just perfect.
