Recipes are equivalent to spells. Alchemy is actually magical, not chemical, and it can be scientific. Treat alchemical recipe effects as ongoing magical effects. When a recipe specifies its duration, that's a general timeframe. A minutes-long duration will almost always last at least two minutes, sometimes five, maybe ten. It will never roll over into the next measurement, an hour. Similarly, a days-long duration won't last a week. If you're Brewing a lower level recipe, you may treat it as a higher level recipe, increasing the casting level by 4 in exchange for increasing the duration by a step. This is called boosting. Conversion Seconds -> Minutes -> Hours -> Days -> Weeks -> Months -> Years -> Decades Therefore Level 1 minutes -> Level 5 hours -> Level 9 days -> Level 13 weeks -> Level 17 months Boosting makes some recipes strengthen in level, rather than increase duration.
