OK - I'm a newbie but have friends like yours.

What you are looking for is a very little malt character, very little hop character and very little yeast-derive character.

Avoid strong flavored ingredients.

Here is one recipe

Pre-Boil Gravity 1.032
Extract
Light LME (2.2L) 5.0 ibs
Rice Syrup(0L) 1.3 ibs

Hops
Happertau 4.0% AA for 60 minutes 0.61oz

Three Wyeast 2007 Pilsen Lager

4.94oz Corn Sugar for carbonating.

4 weeks before botteling

His recipe was my starting point for this recipe, just with the addition of beano to really dry it out and make it real light.

I do think that this recipe would benefit from strictly controlled fermentation temperatures, which I rarely get this time of year. I think I might make Chimone's Bombshell Blonde Ale instead. It seems close in color, with a moderate flavor, and subtle hoppiness. I think it will really please my buddy as sort of a trade-off between the BMC and craft beer. (No offense to Chimone)

Just wanted to say good luck with the BL clone, its all my wife usually drinks and ive tried 3 times to do a clone. It's no joke how hard it is to perfect, the lack of color and flavor makes any off flavor really come through. The best I can do is close to BL but has a stronger malt profile. Post the tasting results when its all said and done.

Once, as an experiment. Brewed a 5 gallon batch of wheat. Pitched yeast into entire 5 gallons, shook, then siphoned a gallon for experimenting. Left 4 gallons as control and 1 gallon as experiment with a couple crushed up beano tablets. The beano wheat fermented out to a 1.003 while the control fermented to a 1.011.

My thinking with the beano for the BL was to use a smaller grain bill, but keep the ABV roughly the same by using the beano, which reduces the unfermentable sugars and , therefore, the caloric content, taste, mouthfeel, etc...... but not the alcohol.

Hope this helps you.


This recipe was written by jim baker. Jim says he has this beer on hand
for that person who just insists Budweiser is the best beer. He serves up one of these and says: "I thought you said a bud like". Its a light crips ale that tastes remarkably like a butt......i mean bud, only better.


4lb extra light DME
1lb Rice syrup solids
1.5lb Dextrose
1.5oz Saaz Hops
1 tsp Irish moss, 1 tsp gypsum
Wyeast 1056 American ale yeast

Instructions:
In 2 gallons of water, add DME, Rice syrup soids, Dextrose and Gypsum and bring to boil. Add 1 Oz. of the Saaz Hops. Boil for 45 minutes, add Irish Moss and other 1/2 oz of Saaz Hops. Boil for a final 15 minutes. Top off to 5 gallons, Cool wort to 80 degrees or colder and pitch yeast. Ferment 10-14 days at 68 - 72 degrees. You can also go from primary to secondary after 4 days and leave in secondary 10 days or until FG is 1.010 - 1.012.

So you're going to brew 5 gallons of beer so you can give your moron buddy a 16oz glass that he will spit up and talk trash about... and you'll be left with 4.9 gallons of piss water to dump down the drain. Sounds like pissin in the wind if you ask me.

you're the one talking trash, buddy. he wants to make a nice light recipe, not piss water.

i've often made light beers for parties so everyone can have a beer they enjoy and i'm happy to say it's always turned out well. i've even had bud drinkers say how wonderful it tastes. i've always liked them, too. even though i prefer dark, strong beers, i can appreciate a crisp, light lager or cream ale any day of the week.

whatever...the OP wanted a comment and that was mine. A "nice light recipe" is pretty much a nice way of saying piss water. If he wants to make an American lager for his friends and drink it, by all means.
