What's the quickest you have got a brew ready to drink from brewday to down your neck? I've never really rushed it. Three weeks is probably my record. What do you think I'd the minimum for drinkable beer? For good beer?

i would imagine you could have a batch done in ten days if using grain and force carbonating, ive found kits take longer to ferment out

7 days to ferment then 3 to crash chill to clear a bit..

i suppose even quicker if you dont crash chill and dont mind a cloudy beer, i would imagine a standard 4% beer would be pretty good and turn out well

Yeah force carbing would speed things up. I don't have the technology. Maybe I could get down to two weeks, seven days FV and seven to carbonate.

10 days is my record, smallish ale around 4% but did use a decent yeast.

My record would be about five weeks but hoping to best that with my new kegs!

you can smash that with kegs, you should be able to get a beer from grain to keg in 14-16 days

About 3 weeks grain to glass, was a 3.5% session ale I made ages ago.  Was drinkable but was deffinately better by the end of the batch.  The true speed king has to be Turbo Cider tho - with nutrient and force carboantion, I've have juice to glass in 5 days.... [biggrin]
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

Hoping so, though I've got to conquer the keg first.
Giving it another run tonight.
