Default Name your shortest fermented beer!

Ok... So I have seen the thread of the longest fermented beer.

What about your shortest?

Everyone gets inpatient. What's your shortest fermented beer and what did it taste like?

Mine was Mr. beer and it turned out super sweet. I moved the keg around a lot during fermentation and it wasn't terrible but was bad...... My girlfriend liked it lol

Please share your experience

I have done plenty of low gravity ales that fermented in a week. They were kegged in week two and gone in week 3. The key is lots of healthy yeast, temperature control, oxygenation, and of course kegging.

My english milds fart thru the airlock for about 2-3 days and the airlock goes dead. I would say they are ready to bottle after 7-10 days. I still let them sit for 3 weeks though just cuzzz.

3 days from grain to end of airlock activity is my shortest so far. For the life of me I can't remember what beer it was.

I brewed an oatmeal stout that finished in 5 days. I bottled on day 6. No bottle bombs, wasn't super sweet. It finished just right. I think it was right around 6.5%, too. It was one of my better beers I've made. But that was a freak thing. I usually don't pull my brews until they've had at least 10-14 days to primary.

I make an extract ESB that goes from boil to empty keg in 2 weeks. It's a little cloudy and not as smooth around the edges, but makes a nice fire pit drinker. Brew on a Saturday morning, fermentation done in 2-3 days and keg on day 7-10. It's usually gone by the following weekend and no one complains. I keep it in rotation all the time.

Probably about three days.

But who really cares?

It is not done in three days!

I have never done anything with a fermentation in less than 14 days. I usually ferment for 3 weeks to allow plenty of time for it to finish.

Pretty much anything brewed with Nottingham can go in a bottle after a week IMO. My favorite extract ale recipe is consistently carbed up and ready to drink 10 days after pitching.
