The hydrometer confirms your results, helps to estimate alcohol content, and confirms that fermentation is complete before bottling. For the small cost you really should get one. If you really want to push quickly to drinking I would go for a more moderate beer (hoppy blonde or hefeweizen maybe) I'd be looking at 6-7 weeks from brew day to drinking with this beer. Fermentation will be longer, there is a dry hop step, and you are bottle conditioning.
