Hey ladies and gents,

I have a delicious dark amber beer, similar to Alaskan Amber in bottles. I'm heading to the brew store tomorrow so I can start another batch tomorrow night.

What's a good beer that won't take as long as the last batch (1.5 months) that I could brew in case the amber doesn't turn out. Something lighter in color.

Thanks a ton!

I've been eyeing this, with perhaps slight mods to yeast/hops used:

Centennial Blonde is a quick turn around beer and really good from what I hear.

I would go with that, cream ale or a hefe.

What do you like to drink? Can you post your alaskan amber recipe? I really like alaskan amber to I am going to brew something similar. But right now I'm brewing a Scottish export kit from mid west. Maybe try that. Not sure how long it will take you I let all my beers ferment for a month and bottle condition for 3 weeks at least.

Don't brew for speed or what others want. Brew something you want even if it takes you an extra month. No point having 50 beers for your buddies when you wanna kick back with a few and you don't like the style and they're whipped for the evening.

My 3rd batch was an American Wheat Northern Brewer kit. I did one week in primary and tried it after a week in bottles, it was yummy then and got really good after a couple more weeks. It maybe my go-to brew when I want a fast turnaround.

Wheat is usually quickest from boil to drink. Other styles as noted can be quick too, but wheats are also best young.

I brewed an extract clone of North Coast's Blue Star wheat beer. It was a really good brew, and it matured quickly. Unfortunately, I don't brew extract normally, and I think I tossed the recipe.

That said, a good wheat beer will be ready quickly, and should fit the style you're after.
