Some help from the Beer Blogosphere :-)

Life is getting the way of brewing. I need to brew soon for Thanksgiving. I liked this idea from Ted over at Ted's Homebrew Journal.
I'd be a challenge to have something ready by Turkey Day. You could brew a quick fermenting beer (lower gravity and freshly late hopped) with a high flocculating yeast strain. Then as the fermentation is winding down, plan on bottling straight from the primary after it is started to clear and when you still see some (very-few) bubbles rising. Don't prime it, and you should have a nice bubbly glass of beer. You could even procrastinate all they way until about 5 days before the day. Just an idea.
Thanks Ted! I just might try this. Gotta go find a yeast...

Northern Brewer had this thread last month about making a beer that's ready quickly. Might be worth a look. I'd be scared to time the bottling with fermentation as suggested above (although I'm tempted with my four day old IPA.)

Adam,

I'm looking forward to how this turns out... Keep us posted! I just brewed last night, a winter warmer holiday ale, hoping to have it ready for Christmas...

I just checked the bubbler this morning and she's a bubbling!
