Default Help, need a fast fermenting AG recipe

Hello,

I need suggestions for a fast fermenting PM or possibly extract brew. It also needs to be friendly to the non connoisseur - for a work party.

It looks like I will have about 4 weeks until the party.

Any ideas ?

Thanks,
Nic

You could do a simple wheat ale, ferment in less than 10 days, no secondary needed.

The usual low alcohol, low roast, low hops ale.
English style yeast usually flocculate quicker than other varieties. So I would make an English bitter or Mild.
The other choice is a Hefe. Hefes are not supposed to be clear so it is not important how flocculant your yeast is.

In either case I would leave it in the fermenter 2 weeks and then in the bottle 2 weeks. Make sure you try some before serving to ensure they are carbonated and nothing is off.

If you want to speed it up, add some trub or pitch over a yeast cake from a previous batch. Be sure to us a blow hose! I have had beers rattling the airlock in less than two hours.

the honey might make it take a bit longer to ferment out and won't give you much flavor anyway. but since you already made it...i'd stick to the 2 weeks plan. if you keg, it could be ready to drink a day or two after with force carbonation.

+1 on either the trub or a large started to at least get you going all the faster. I pitched a large starter in a batch last night and was bubbling away in less than 3 hours.
