Default From grain to glass in 10 days?

Explanation: I would like to brew this beer to celebrate the end of the football (soccer) season of my fav club: Bayern München (see my avatar). They play the next three Saturdays in a row, and could go on to win three different competitions (the league, the German cup and the European cup (UEFA Champion's League). I will most likely be having friends over for the last game of the season, on May 22nd. I have some other brews planned in the next couple of days, but would like to try to make this in the middle of next week (Tuesday or Wednesday). Obviously, it's something extra-light to have it ready so quick. I will also be kegging and force carbing it, which should help (maybe 2 days in the fridge). Thus, it would spend about 8-9 days in fermentation.

So, is it possible? Any tips you guys have to help get it ready in that kind of time (other than brewing it earlier, I may end up doing it on Sunday/Monday).

First few replies suggest that 10 days is too quick, but there are quite a few guys that say 10 days is plenty. Of course, these are guys that make beer as a more of a science than an art, i.e. everything is repeatable.

Check this out too - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f13/agin...cussion-84005/

I think you can do it, especially as light as your recipe is. I was drinking my mild in about 2 weeks, grain to glass, and I bottle. Left it in primary for a week, bottled and had carbonation after 1 week. And, it was damn tasty at that point.

Definately can be done. Optimal results might not be achieved, however, I would do a hefeweizen which will require no clearing. It might take about 10 days to ferment so if your watch you OG you should be right on.

Another option would be a Kolsh style ale. If you can ferment at cool temps the fruitiness might be drinkable at 10 days. Fine it and keg it.

I just made an IPA that is in the keg and I am drinking, I made it 16 days ago. It could have been ready sooner if it needed to be.

10 Gal batch

19 Lbs. Pale Ale Malt

5 Lbs. 40-50L Crystal Malt

1.5 oz Nugget 60 min
1.5 oz Nugget 30 min
2 oz Nugget 2 min
All whole leaf home grown so Alpha % unknown I estimated at 12%

Kinda dark for an IPA but it taste just toasty enough and just rosiny enough to be balanced a good IMHO.

Like others have said it may not be optimal but it is for a football party so anything should be perfect anyway.

If it were me, I'd hold off on a ten day brew and get a good one going that will be ready for the World Cup!

If you care about style, a Kolsch is traditionally lagered for 1 month, and I can guarantee it will be cloudy at 10 days if you don't using a fining agent and cold crash. That yeast takes time and cold to drop clear, but it will.

I've already got quite a bit of beer in the pipeline that should be ready for the World Cup, but I wanted something special for their possible (knock on wood) treble this year.

All good information I'm getting guys, I may very well push this up to Monday to get just that bit of extra time. Also, I will most likely be fermenting a bit cooler (18-19C) to keep the yeast nice and clean.
