    Vienna/Northern Brewer/California Common SMaSH

    I'm not sure how it would score in a competition as a "common". (and I don't really care" but as I said the I really enjoyed the beer. I know folks use clean fermenting ale yeasts for the style, to me BRY-97 seemed to fit the bill.

    is it possable to brew a beer like ....

    This is a recipe for a three gallon batch I brewed. I wanted a flavorfull lager, but wound up with a very light low flavor beer. So much so that I am either going to blend it or dump it. But it might be close to what you are looking for. 4 lbs 4.0 oz Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0...

    Quick yeast starter?

    You could always take some of your first runnings maybe a quart or so give it a quick boil, chill it down pitch the yeast in that. Shake the hell out of it every once in a while. Let the yeast get happy while you finish brewing. And pitch the whole thing.

    English yeast and overcarbonation

    I seriously doubt that yeast from another batch carried over, but I guess it's possible. I've found that English yeasts sometimes need a bit of rousing to help them finish up. What was the OG and how long was it in the fermenter?

    How can some brewers cold crash and keg so soon?

    Unless the yeast was really old, I wouldn't bother with a starter for a one gallon batch. A one gallon batch is basically a starter. I would just pitch the yeast. If you want to get a couple of brews out of it just harvest some from the one gallon.
