Hello all!

Ok, I got my IPA racked to secondary this weekend and after taking inventory it appears that I'll be running low on beer reserves SOON!

I need help with a beer recipe for summer drinking. Something we can enjoy with crabs or on the boat. Something that will condition quick if possible so I'll have enough for the later part of summer. I'm hoping for a beer that we can drink within 3 weeks of brewing...

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I'm in the same boat. I'm going to brew Biermuncher's Belgian wit.

If you can't keg, you will be hard-pressed to have a beer ready in 3 weeks. It could be done, but I think you'd be better off just saving a bit of your current beer, or buying some. After all, why go through the time and effort to drink an extremely green beer?

If you can keg, then a cream ale, American pale, American wheat, or dry stout are all good options.

Could always do Jamil's Blonde Ale, it is cheap, easy, and tasty! Always a hit around here.

I just did this, with Centennial Blonde. Fermented for 10 days, and kegged for 4 and it's drinking real nice.

A hefeweizen with 3068 yeast is always a good bet... Takes me 5-7 days at the most to ferment.

I'm about to do a Strawberry Smash with MO and Williamette.
1 week in primary, 2 weeks on the strawberries.
I think it'll be fantastic!
