Well, to be fair, this particular glass was from a swingtop that I need to replace the gasket on. It foamed pretty heavily when I opened it, but the head died down in a hurry. I'm going to try one of my regularly capped bottles as a comparison, so the story isn't over yet.

As for your other suggestion, I may very well, try Cascade hops the next time I do something like this. I just wanted to keep hip additions as simple as possible for my first time doing something like this.

What day did you actually brew that on? I have pushed beers from grain to glass in 3 weeks with bottle conditioning and typically it is just a matter of picking the right styles.

Brewday was on 7/21 according to a previous post. I saw OP stated it finished at 1.015. Some are concerned that it could have gone down to 1.010. IMHO, even if it couldve and did, thats not gonna cause bottle bombs, actually it jus might help the carbonation. At over 1 week in the bottle, carbonation ahould be coming in nicely.

Yup, just a matter of style. In this case, it was a blonde. The key is a relatively low gravity.

So the verdict is in. I brought my speed brew to a BBQ last night, and it was the Belle of the Ball. I wasn't sure how it would be received until someone came up to me and asked, "Have you tried 'The Seven Day Itch' yet? It's amazing!" ('Seven Day Itch', btw, is what I called it.)
