If you want a quicker turn around you can check out some of the more straight forward recipes like Edwort's or Yoopers Pale Ales, a mild, a hefe, or search 10der or Fastest grain to glass for quick recipes.

Kegging helps too, fwiw.

I often drink "green" homebrew, but I primary for 3-4 weeks, so it is not really green, just not fully carbed. I am rarely disappointed, maybe not the beer it could be, but it is the beer I want.

Whatever, I am opening one in 2 days after 1 week in the bottle. It's for research and QA purposes!

I knew what I was getting in to; I have been prepared to wait. Not as big a fan of the pale ales and hefes.

I've done really well, but this last week is just killing me!

Seriously it won't hurt anything to crack a few and drink them.

I have a chocolate cherry porter that i bottled about 5 weeks ago and reading everything on here about how much beers improve over time makes me afraid to drink them, but I admit to drinking about 8 or so of them and each one is tasting better and better. I moved a 12 pack to the basement to forget about for a few months.

Now i understand the importance of developing a pipeline!

I am already seeing this, and am dying to get my next brew underway so that I'll have something that will be ready in a reasonable timeframe!

I also have a dead guy ale clone bottled, it hits 3 weeks this Sunday. Im kegging an Irish red this weekend, and then a kolwch the week after that, a Sierra Nevada pale ale clone hits one week in primary this Sunday and Sunday I will also be brewing an ipa. I got the keg equipment now so its one batch a week until I have wayyy too much beer to ever find myself "running low" or drinking green beer.

Wow, nice pipeline!

I'll probably be brewing a batch per month - which is honestly more beer than I will drink.

Ummm. If you have any extras that you can't get around to drinking ... Well it wouldn't be right if we didn't offer to take those nasty, awful beers off your hands.
