Default Recipe Request: First Brew

Well, the time has come, my first beer brewed solely by me and I need a recipe or two from you fine folks here. What I’m looking for is a good, cheap (around $30 in materials), and fast (done fermenting in a week, sit in bottles for a week) recipe for a partial mash ale. I’m thinking maybe a Brown Ale or a Hefe but not an IPA (I’m slowly building my hop tolerance and don’t want to do an overly hoppy Stone Ruination clone just yet). Thanks very much in advance and sorry if I posted this in the wrong area.

Dude, there isn't a quality recipe that I can think of that is going to give you that kind of quick turn around. For most mid- and low- gravity beers, you can follow the 1-2-3 rule of thumb, meaning a week in primary, 2 in secondary and 3 in the bottle (or 3 in primary, 3 in the bottle).

This hobby is all about patience.

time line is a bit short. another week or two would make it better. you could make a hefe (just 6lbs of wheat DME and 1oz of hersbrucker (0.5 at 60, 0.5 at 15) - use the wiehenstephan yeast if it fits the budget. depends how quickly your bottles condition - i recently made a batch that conditioned in less than a week (but it'd been 2 weeks in primary).

PS: also check out olllllo's mild ale thread - that stuff is ready quickly - just don't tell your mates they are drinking "mild" beer.

I think in this thread someone stated brew day to glass in 10-14 days...If you have a keg system

Like I said, first brew, so, let's bump the time limit up to what is appropriate. I basically want something quick but quality.

No keg system, only bottles right now. But that looks good....hmmm....There's one option!

An Irish Red Ale would be very tastey and easy brew. Although the 1-2-3 is probably still in effect.

You could probably get a hefe or wit done in around a week or so. Try some Blue Balls: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f71/blue-balls-belgian-wit-blue-moon-clone-24978/

EDIT: You will need more than a week in the bottle for this one though still.

The English brown in my pulldown menu is quick and easy. You could ferment it for 14 days, and then bottle it up. If you use a dry flocculant yeast like Nottingham, it should clear quickly. It's an extract, but it could easily be changed to a PM recipe if you want.

A hefe was already mentioned, and that's also a good choice, but it'd be extract, not PM.
