Default Help! Don't know what to brew

I am stuck. I have been brewing consistently brewing fortnightly for the last few months and I am stuck I don't know what to brew next. I am not looking for a long aging process as I need something to drink in 3 weeks or so. I have recently made: maple stout, american brown, rhubarb blond ale, pilsner, saison, Black IPA and an american IPA. Any suggestions would be helpful. Cheers.

for a fast turnaround a low gravity bitter, blonde or pale ale would fit your time frame.

Agree with sonex, but you have to have the capacity to force carb - no way to be drinkable from bottling in that timeframe.

Hefeweizen, I've had carbed up bottles 4 weeks after brewday. I'm sure if you rushed it along you could be drinking it after a few weeks.

Nah, no bad at all - just reminding the OP that kegging is his only hope. You *might* get a lower gravity beer to carb up in two weeks in bottles, but you'd be pushing it.

If you made a bigger saison, I would think about something lighter and Belgian. Something over the top on hop aroma. The surly cynic clone from northerbrewer was probably my favorite beer I've made this summer. It fits the bill.

Brew a Golden Vanilla Sarsaparilla Cream Ale.

Blonde for sure. A Honey Bee Ale by midwest is always good if you can force carb it.
