Anytime I try a beer that early not only is there zero chance it's carbed to where I like, but it ALWAYS still has that grainy flavor to it. I can't break 4 weeks minimum.

Try making an IPA - hops cover up a lot of that flavor and they're excellent fresh

It depends on the beer. If you have a keg setup a Weizen can probably be done in less then two weeks. I don't see how a Porter or other heavy beer could really be done that fast though.

I did a Summer Wheat, one week in primary and one week in the bottle and it tasted great.

Actually, I agree with the wheat beer -- I've had IPA's drinkable quickly, but never 2 weeks.

low gravity is key here nothing over like 1.040. a low gravity dry stout works great but you will have to brew another batch soon because they will be gone fast.

For me, even a wheat needs more than two weeks.

I mean, it is drinkable in a couple of weeks, but gets SOOOOO much better after a couple of weeks in the keg.

I prefer American IPAs and other hoppy styles as young as possible, while the fruity yeast esters will still complement the flavor hops. 2 weeks sounds perfect for a low gravity IPA or highly hopped pale ale.

The simple answer is that I don't. The only way I can imagine drinking anything younger than 3+ weeks is pitch 3x as much yeast as normal and then filter and force carb. No thanks.

I go grain to grass via heating pad germination.
