Default Recommend a quick beer to me

Hey all,

I have a Saison and Kolsch fermenting and ready to bottle, and it's time to begin another batch.

I want my next brew to be fast and easy. Minimum primary and bottle conditioning time. A light colored beer with a good bit of hops flavor.
ABV low - average.

I'm looking for an extract. Give me suggestions.

-DZ

I second the Hefeweizen recommendation. Great beer, simple recipe and short fermentation. Win-win-win.

What about a recipe that calls for HLME? The reason for the long boil is for hop utilization correct? HLME requires less boiling time if any at all.

Another vote for a hef - they are quick to ferment and meant to be drank young.

Every one beat me to it. I was going to recommend a hefeweizen until I read the op wants a hoppy light beer. Then I was going to recommend a blonde ale because its low abv, slightly hoppy, and is fast from grain to glass. Pick one of them and you can't go wrong for a beer that is great and can be served quickly.

+1 for Centennial Blonde

I did a batch using falconer's flight 7C's and it was ready in less than 4 weeks and I bottle carbed.
