First off, I can't stand how shady Bud, Miller, & Coors are as far as the ethics of their companies go. Watch "Beer Wars" & you'll see what I'm talking about. There are reasons why they are the #1 selling beer in the world...they sue up & coming craft breweries who can't afford to fight them off because of the legal costs even when they know they don't have a case...they dominate all the shipping & shelf space because they have 50 different ways of packaging the same crappy beer...the list goes on forever!

Secondly, I once did an experiment with my uncle who exclusively drinks Bud. I emptied out a can when he wasn't around & refilled it with water. He drank the whole thing & didn't even recognize the difference. If your flavor is off, just dilute it with some river water & you're flavor will be spot on.

What I would do is brew up a barleywine & tell him it's a Bud. Then make sure you have a camera to take a picture of his face on the first sip!

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.

this may be father's day gift to my pops
