How about a mild Denny?  Irish stout, brown ale?  Even a hoppy pale ale can be done and delicious in a short period of time, you just need to understand the limitations of brewing on short notice.  Low gravity, quick fermentation, not a lot of time for playing around with flavors post ferment.  Ferment, chill, keg, carb, serve, drink.  No problem.

I corrected that for you. :)

I have never found a mild that I care for.  Burned out on Irish stout a long time ago.  LOVE hoppy American browns, English browns (as most English styles) do nothing for me.

With flavor and at least moderate body.  I've never found a mild I like that didn't remind me of water.

I find Denny to be pretty laid back, easy going, and mild.  ;D

I dunno, that's what I really like about milds - they're table beers. Drink 'em for breakfast if you want. Although perhaps that's me getting burned out on hops after having pulls from my new hop rocket every night for the last week.

Been a lot of talk of fast beer lately. Well, darn it, I'm doing it! Got a bbq I'm planning next weekend, and my 10 gallons of wheat is about gone. It's gone over real well with my friends here. Need to get something else on tap for the party. So, I'm doing my house IPA. I've done it in 8 days before. This time, I plan to brew on Saturday, and keg 5 gallons of it Friday night, and cold crash it. Saturday morning, I will force carb it, and be drinking by 6 p.m. that day. I'll keg the other 5 gallons after it's had a full 14 days. Call me crazy, but i'm doing it!  8)
How did it work out?

Ended up doing it the right way. I brewed it this past Saturday, and I will be home from Ohio to keg it on the 11th.
