Default Bud clone

I am looking for a bud clone with step by step instructions including the temps for the lagering process. Thanks for the help!

I can't seem to find it on their website, but I just got the Midwest (http://www.midwestsupplies.com) catalog today. i was flipping through earlier and they have a Budweiser kit if you are interested.

You really can't make Bud at home. That's the bad news.

The good news is, you can't make Bud at home.

Budweiser is the lightest of beers, both in color and flavor (what little of it there is). It is hopped so little that I think they put the hops in a bag and just wave them over the boil kettle. The hardest part is that this beer is squeaky clean. I mean polish-the-floor-till-you-can-see-yourself kind of clean. It requires diligence and spot-on procedures that border on ludicrous for the homebrewer. With little to no flavor in the finished product, even tiny little flaws stand out hugely.

Your best all-grain effort will result in a beer that has a much more pronounced malt profile, nicely balanced bitterness, and maybe just a hint of hops in the nose. That would be a much better beer, don't you think?

The why is probably because Fishfool likes Bud Hey everyone starts out trying to duplicate what they like. I started because I wanted to see if I could make something close to the German lagers that I like to drink. In the course of my brewing however I have expanded my tastes due to contact with these forums and I would hope Fishfool will do the same. I am doing a Kolsch with a Belgium Abby style ale going this Friday and a Schwarzbier as soon as I get my hands on a third carboy.
Just saying don't get down on him for his choice as long as it gets him brewing. He'll come around

The cost of brewing 2 cases of a Bud clone will far exceed the cost of buying 2 cases at 7-11

Either way good luck!

I know I've said this before (so you'll read it again), but the only Bud(var) I brew is from Ceske Budejovice in the Czech Republic...

BTW, AB doesn't stand for Anheuser-Busch, it's for Almost Beer.
