Hey all,

I'm a student at the University of Illinois, and we have a time-honored tradition here called Unofficial. Basically it is when the entire student body of around 40,000 celebrates (drinks all day, morning till night, class or not) St. Patrick's Day but a bit earlier than normal. Its going to be held on February 29th this year. I want to plan a brew for me and my friends that will be indicative of St. Patricks Day that will be ready for Feb. 29th. Any Ideas?

Thanks all.

Less than ideal time for most beers but you should be fine.
A dry stout is a good Irish style thats small enough to not be a problem. A red ale would work also. Give the beer 2 weeks in the fermenter then bottle, so it has enough time to carbonate and condition some.
Then when you get that one started, get a couple more started and make sure you always have plenty in the pipeline. That ensures you don't have to drink beer before its ready.
