Can anyone recommend an AG recipe that can have a quick turnaround? I'm not too woried about style, just want something I can make to try to see if my proccess is good. I've got a couple of brews kegged/secondarying that might be a little green, and I'd like to try to make something to see if I've been "doin it right" before I try to make a few batches with a longer lead time. Thanks!

This is a great recipe. I'm fond of English mild ale.

I would highly recommend BierMuncher's Cream of Three Crops. Very quick turn around time and an awesome beer! All your BMC loving friends will love it as well. Might even convert them into loving homebrew.

This is a good discussion on Milds and a 10 day turnover for keggers.

Most lower OG beers without any roasted malt or tons of bittering could be ready quickly.

In addition to mild (which easily goes grain to glass in 10 days), you could consider a blonde (my fizzy yellow beer is quick).

Using a very well-attenuating and flocculant yeast helps. Also, make sure to pitch enough yeast at the beginning to ensure a quick start and complete fermentation. Either a big starter, or dry yeast would work well.

Weizens also ferment and are ready to drink very fast.
Insert catchy signature here....

Wow, thanks for all the suggestions!
I thought I'd get a few naysayers telling me not to rush.

Anything using English type ale yeasts will be very quick, as long as it isn't a high gravity beer.
