My experience is as little as 5 days to 3 weeks... though I usually add yeast at bottling.

With our system and our house IPA (Double Jack clone)... 4-5 days fermentation, 4-6 days
dryhopping... then 10-16 days to bottle carb(if not bottling from the keg)... And that is with

Add about 3.75 oz of sugar to about 1 1/2 - 2 cups of water and boil for about 10 min. Let it

Buckets for sure... that and a conical fermenter. Having several buckets each of 5, 6.5, and
