I completed my first batch of extract brew... and then drank it before I started the next batch. (It goes faster than I had thought) My last brew took about 12 days to get it into bottles, but then took 3-4 weeks before it was past the green beer taste. Now I'm looking for an extract recipe that I can have ready in the shortest time possible. My goal is to get past the green beer taste in 2 weeks or less. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I don't know of any way to make it go faster, except to maybe brew a beer with a low OG (not sure about that either).

You don't want to rush it. I just got my first set of kegs and am dying to get a brew that has been going for about 10 days kegged. I plan to give it three weeks total, then cold crash it, then keg it, which is still a little shorter than I would like (I have kept some in my primary for 6 weeks prior to bottling in the past). I would rather wait then drink it green. This hobby requires some patience.

Yea sounds like you need to either brew more often or add another fermenter or two so you can get a pipeline going (I know, I know, these are terrible problems to have). Then you can be drinking beer A while beer B is bottle conditioning (or kegged) and beer C, D, E, and F is fermenting! Brew, transfer, bottle, chug, repeat.

Just to be clear I'm not trying to find some way to speed up the process and shortcut the beer. I'm just looking for a the shortest actual recipe someone has tried. I'm trying to make a quick one so that I can get a pipeline going.

As far as the forced carb, I don't have kegs yet. I will be getting them, but I'm in bottle right now.
