So I'm picking up my starting kit form a LHBS in a week or two, and I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to brew first. I prefer darker and heavier beers but I'm under a slight time constraint. I would be able to brew no earlier than May 4th and it would need to be bottled by May 23rd. I was thinking about a cream ale but I'm not sure if there are other beers with quick fermentation times. I would prefer not to have to rush it, but if I don't do it by the 23rd, it'll be months before I can.
