once it's cold an carbed I can drink it ....right
You don't even have to wait for that, you can drink it warm and uncarbonated. Now, did you just want to drink beer or did you want to drink good tasting beer? You didn't tell us how long it had been in the fermenter of if it had been secondaried or even what kind of beer it was so how can we tell you when it will be good? I've had beers that were good to drink 3 weeks from pitching the yeast and some that took more than 3 months.
