3 weeks til I need to deliver beer for a wedding
I have a friend that has asked me to make a beer for his daughters wedding. Due to lifes schedule I am really late in getting this started. He wanted a Lager but that is not going to happen. I need something similar without any hops and something that can be pushed along and still deliver a good product.

Any suggestions?

Yes, a light blonde or cream ale. Low original gravity is your friend when you are in a hurry for the beer to finish.

Are you kegging?

Yes, all grain set up for 10 to 15 gallon batches and forced carb in kegs.
I am looking for something with a little extra body than a pils or a light beer.
These are not craft beer people but could be converted :drunk: I hear a big starter and using a yeast that clears quickly is the key. Not sure what types of Yeast that is though...

I recently made a centennial blonde. Took about 14 days from grain to carbed in the keg. Very similar to blue moon but not as peppery and has more mouth feel. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/cent...10-gall-42841/

With your time constraints an extra body or bigger beer probably wont happen. Good luck and keep us posted on what you decide to make.

i was going to suggest centennial blonde as well. a crowd pleaser for the BMC gang

Yet another vote for centennial blonde....

Just kicked my first keg of Centennial Blonde and I, too, would recommend it. I will be brewing my second batch this weekend for late July drinking by the pool.

You could try Yooper's Yellow Fizzy Beer. Just skip the lagering.
