Default Need Some in a month

I'm looking to get something on tap in 1 month. I'm hosting a bachelor party and didn't think ahead enough to check my kegs until last night. Everything but my 9/9/9 is nearly cashed.

I'm looking for something that I can brew this weekend and have ready to go. Maybe a Hefe? I'm not sure. Any suggestion on a beer that drinks well young? This will be a pretty BMC crowd and I will probably have a keg of some BMC to appease the masses but I want to show off some home brew as well. The grooms beer of choice is Busch Lite (or Blue Yummies as he refers to them )

First - anyone who refers to their beverage of choice as "blu yummies" needs a slap to the face and a shot of cheap whiskey. Get that man together... yeesh!

Second - brew a mild, or a wheat beer. An American wheat would probably be a good choice. Pitch a HUGE starter, like a one gallon starter, and decant the spent starter wort. Start that starter NOW.

Go here and then down to "Speed Brewing." Basically, do something with an OG of about 1.040, use a clean yeast that can withstand 70-75F without making too many off flavors and that flocculates very well (I think the guy uses nottingham), and pitch twice the amount of yeast as normal. This guy made a beer from grain to glass in exactly 1 week, and supposedly it was good.

Nothing wrong with a 1.040 American light hybrid.

If you are kegging, a Weizen can easily be done in 3 weeks. You do not even have to take any short cuts. You will need to brew like this weekend.

Biermuincher's centennial blonde is always a good choice. Generally appeases the BMC'ers. I'm a big fan of the milds, brown or scottish, but doesn't sound like it would be a crowd favorite in said circle.

If you are kegging, you have a lot of options IMO. Nothing over 6% probably, and nothing overly hoppy or roasty. So no big beers, not IPA's, no stouts or porters, but pretty much anything else is game. 3 week primary and then a week in the keg to carb up. As long as you keep the alcohol in check and don't go crazy with the hops, you can brew all sorts of different stuff.

I'm leaning this route after looking over Ed's Bavarian Hefe recipe. I mighth ave to make a stop by NB on the way home today to pick up some yeast and get that starter going tonight.

+1 on wanting to slap the groom for calling ANYTHING a "blue yummy."

J/k, like others have said, since you keg, and if you pitch a large amount of yeast you should be able to pull of any reasonably graved ale.
