in trouble again :(
« on: February 06, 2016, 07:14:21 PM »
I got myself invited to a meeting of the Amsterdam homebrew club next Friday, and promised I would bring along a beer brewed in 6 days, according to Drew's express brewing technique - http://www.maltosefalcons.com/tech/express-brewing-speed-brewing-grain-glass-less-10-days-0

Please tell me it can be done  :(

This morning I brewed a 1040 Mosaic APA, pitched Thames Valley yeast at 1:30 PM @17C (it seems to be churning away at 7PM).  So cold crash on Monday evening, transfer to another keg on Tuesday morning, rack to yet another keg on Wednesday and force-carbonate, bottle on Thursday evening, take the train on Friday to Amsterdam, and NOT be the laughing stock of the Dutch homebrew crowd in the evening.

Please tell me it can be done  :(

This sounds like something that you'd want to do at least a couple of times to get it right before committing to do it for other people.
Good luck.

No, it's Drew's technique. Either it works our it doesn't. If it works I'll be a hero and if doesn't we'll laugh at those stupid Americans.

That or you could start brewing beers more than a week out .   ;)

When I brew my Hefe it's usually ready in 5-6 days, so good luck!

Reached final gravity right on time!  Will start cold crashing according to schedule in a couple of hours. Only thing I'm not sure about is whether I should add some gelatin tomorrow morning when I rack to a keg...

Maybe....
You mean not by me:(

Yes it can be done, but not by you.  The way you dither about recipes here, at Day 6 you will still be deciding on your recipe.   ;)

Obviously you are unable to grasp my long term plan, so let me spell it out for you:
1. Dither endlessly about recipes.
2. Brew beers in 6 days.
3. Achieve world dominance.
