Default 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.

Here's one: http://www.singingboysbrewing.com/blondeale.html

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 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.

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.
