Default Good cream ale recipe

My friend is getting married and I'm look for a good cream ale recipe to make for his bachelor party. This will be my third brew and have only done extract brewing so not to experienced yet and it has to be done by July 7th. There not really beer drinkers so I was looking for something lighter and drinkable that is why I choose the cream ale what do you guys think? I search the forum and only found all grain recipes.

You can always do a partial mash or extract conversion of it.

Yes I know it's a short amount of time but I had my last IPA good enough to drink in like a month.

A month is pushing it unless you brew like today! 14 days in primary fermentation is a minimum for a cream ale and then 14 days in bottles @ 72F to get carbonation building. Can you do a partial mash?

I just bottled my "test run" of my first cream ale using BM's "Cream of Three Crops" AG recipe as a basis....this is 24 hours after bottling...this color won't scare the bud light drinkers! I am making 11 gallons of this for my brother's wedding which is in August.

You could actually do a 5 gallon batch of this with a simple "BIAB" all grain mash on your stovetop if you have a 5+ gallon brew pot. I have done this plenty of times with up to 8 lbs of grain so it can be done.

here's some info on how to do an all grain "BIAB" brew:

i've got a basic cream ale that the wife loves and i love, too. my bud-light drinking friend commented, 'dude, is this a homebrew?'

for a six-gallon batch (use your 6.5 gallon bucket w a blowoff):
2.5 lbs 6-row
1.1 lbs carapils
1.1 lbs flaked maize
1.5 lbs pilsen extract (pre-boil)
3 lbs pilsen extract (post-boil)
0.5 ounce northern brewer (60 mins) 0.5 ounce northern brewer (10 mins) wyeast 1056

my mash method using a 4 gallon pot and a 2 gallon pot: mash 6-row, carapils, flaked maize in 5.2 quarts water for 60 minutes @ 152, batch sparge in brewpot with 2 gallons water @ 170, combine worts, add 1.5 lbs of extract, begin boil

if you don't underpitch your yeast, you can go from stovetop to bottle pop in four weeks
