Default Need a fast batch- any suggestions?

I had to dump a batch that went bad today. I just racked a kolsch to the secondary, but that will take awhile to clear up. I have about 3 gallons of ready to drink beer kegged and carbonating.

I need to make something that will be drinkable fairly quickly. Something simple, too, I think. Any ideas?

+1 on Edwort's Haus Ale... with crash cooling and kegging, I've hit 12 days from brew to glass. YMMV

Anything low on the hops will be quick. If you use White Labs English Ale yeast and Yeast Fuel in the primary it can take a few days off of your fermentation time. Just rack into a secondary when you hit FG. You could be kegging is 7-10 days.

Browns & Milds can also be ready that fast, if you keep the gravity below 1.045.

All good ideas. American Wheat works, too, then you don't even need to worry about it clearing! I'm re-brewing the GoP wheat soon (big hit last weekend), but I'm going to add a little sweet orange peel this time for another element.
