I pitched S-04 dry on a pale ale and it was done in a few days, too. I find S-04 and S-05 to be some serious stuff I keep things between 65 and 70, and they just go to town.

I still let it mellow in secondary for 2 weeks. It tasted pretty hot due to the 3 gal of apple cider in there. Exited to crack open some bottles this weekend!! 4 weeks start to finish isn't too bad for anything involving apples.

I can turn around an APA in 2 weeks 1.50ish. I've done a mild in 10 days and it was good. I just kegged a 1.060 APA after 2 weeks and it was way too green, so I just pulled out of kegerator and put back in the basement. A few things went wrong, I think. 1) I didn't rehydrate yeast, 2) I didn't filter or dechlorinate my water, 3) basement was 57 (during cold spell). I call it the choas pale ale.

My fastest was Edwort's Pale Ale. Grain to Belly was about 2 weeks or a hair less.

Fastest was a IIPA I mashed super low and pitched a healthy dose of Nottingham. 36 hours from 1.086 to 1.007. I have a temp controlled conical and this was at 66F.
