I have a party in about 15 days that has dramatically grown in size. Like 3x !

So, I thought I'd brew some more yummy beer.

My top 3, given the time frame, are

BM 10dr and Done ( Mild )
EdWort's Haus Ale
BM Centennial Blonde.

These will be force carbed @ 40.

Other than the 10dr and done, opinions on the other two being drinkable by others in that time ? (Yes, I've read the sticky ).

I've done Ed's Haus in that amount of time.10 days in primary, cold crashed for 2 days, 2 days carb at 30, then dropped to 12 to serve. Haven't had any issues with it tasted great plus nice and clear.

Conditioning: None
Kegged: Water

I would recommend a few cases of Coors, and a few 6 packs of Rogue, Stone, and New Belguim.
Perhaps you could throw in a few 12 packs of PBR.

Seriously...you CAN get a heffe, or a Mild together, but those have never proven to be a huge croud pleaser in my circles.

Pitch a BIG yeast starter, twice as much as you normally do. This will make sure that the ferment takes off and gets the attenuation done in a few days, which will leave the rest of the time for cleaning up diacetal, etc.

+1 on the wheat, that guy is made for fresh drinking. Hoppier beers are going to be a little green (excuse the pun) by that time, but the lower abv english milds and scottish 60/- might be good enough.

I wouldn't serve 14 day old beer. You have a decent showing of homebrew already. Fill it in with commercial.

I brewed EdWort's Haus Pale on 11/7 and served it on Thanksgiving, and everyone was very pleased with it. It was my first AG, to boot and bottled, not kegged.

Hopefully you have some left, that way you can see in a couple of weeks how much better that beer will become with the appropriate time to age...
