I tend to turn around lower gravity beers in 9-14 days from grain to glass. I've even had a keg of ordinary bitter tapped and kicked after seven days for a party.

Weirdly enough, I had to dump a batch of a zythos pale ale that I made with BRY-97. I fermented it cool and even so I got a weird almost banana-y spicy kind of flavor and yeasty bite. Even when the...
