Default BYO Budweiser Clone

Found the following recipe on BYO's website

Quote:
• 2.5 lbs. extra light dry malt extract
• 1.5 lbs. light honey
• 1 oz. Cascade hops (6% alpha acid): 0.25 oz. for 60 min., 0.25 oz. for 30 min.,
0.5 oz. for steeping
• 1 tsp. Irish moss for 15 min.
• 1 tsp. gypsum
• Wyeast 1056 (American ale) or Yeast Lab Canadian ale (AO7)
• 3/4 cup corn sugar for priming
Are there any ingredients that I could add to sweeten this beer? How much lactose would you recommend as a possibility?

With an ale yeast and Cascade hops (especially a half-ounce steep addition) , I can't imagine this recipe coming anywhere close to Bud. But that doesn't answer your question.

Lactose would be a good choice, because you can add it at bottling to get the taste you want. I'd add a little at a time (half-ounce to an ounce, boiled to sanitize), stir gently and taste after each addition.

I'm not really looking to make a Bud clone. My friend heard I brew and wants to get into it, wanted a simple recipe for an easy-drinking beer and came upon this one.

EDIT: oops... forgot to thank you for the tip! Thanks!

I would also drop the honey and use rice or another lb of extra light DME.

WTF... a sweet BMC,,,,,
Sorry that sounds repulsive..
Check out the Wiki for the article on Pale lager and Brewing BMC.
Seriously it's a bad idea, go for a pale ale/ pale English session bitter.
Much tastier and easier.

+1.....

If he's a BMC drinker and is getting into homebrew he most likely wont be able to lager the brew (no temp control) so go with a low IBU pale ale like Edworts haus Pale on this site. Even my analretentive Miller lite freinds like that stuff. And so do I, I'm finishing of a pint of it now.

I see you never drank a Keystone Light. That stuff tastes like you're sucking on a sugar stick.

Yeah, maybe go with the Urquell clone and go easy on the hops for a first-time homebrew drinker. I'd keep the IBU's to around 25 or so for a first attempt, even though the Urquell is higher than that. That recipe you posted is pretty weak; I wouldn't brew a beer with that recipe. Just by first glance, the ABV will probably be around 2-3%. Go with maybe 9# 2 row, 1# rice (cook it on your stove as you would eat it, then mash with the grains), and maybe 8 oz of the lightest crystal you can get, but the crystal would probably add too many unfermentable sugars, seeing as Bud is rather dry. Ferment with a lager strain that attenuates high (maybe Wyeast 2007?).
