I'd have to go get my brewery computer right now for all the details on the recipe, but it's something like 11# 2 row, and maybe 2# of 40*, Some Mags at 60 min, and cascade at 45,30,15, and FO. I do not recall the gravity of the top of my head. In the low 1050 area maybe? :-\
  Will definatly do a follow up. It's pretty much my house IPA recipe. I know it taste better after a couple weeks, but it will be good. I think I stand a good fighting chance.

Pretty soon we'll be seeing posts about brewing in the morning, drinking in the afternoon ;)

Good luck and hope it turns out well.  What temp do you ferment at to get done that fast?

How about drinking some wort and chasing it with a vial of liquid yeast?

Think i'll keep the ambient at about 65*.

Isn't that going to give you a pretty high (70+) fermentation temp?

It sounds like he's giving priority to getting it done as quickly as possible.

True, but I'm assuming he's looking to produce the best beer possible in that time frame.  He could take it up to 85F if he's looking for speed.  The yeast would be happy.

The times I've taken an APA or IPA above 68F for primary fermentation I haven't been happy with the results.

You nailed it right on......I know it won't be my best beer. I know it could be better. But, due to time restraints, I'm gonna try and make the best beer I can for the time I have to get it done. Then, once I get back from Ohio, I brew 10 gallons of Oreo Cream Stout, and and totally blow their minds.  ;D
   Gonna look at my recipe, and lower the OG from the normal, also make adjustments to the hop additions to keep the IBU in the same range. I really think I have a good shot at making a good, drinkable beer in this timeframe.

See, I guess I just don't understand what the point is if this is the result.
