OK. Here is the extract recipe version of what I brewed . You could substitute 3 1/2 pounds of DME for the LME. If you want a little more maltiness maybe use 60L Crystal and add 1/2 pound Carapils malt. You can steep the grains in 2 1/2 gallons of 152° water for about 45 minutes to an hour. Remove the grains, add your extract, and brew on. The recipe as shown below ferments out pretty dry because of the honey.
I'll let you know how it tastes maybe this weekend.

I too will be in the extract realm for a bit...

I tried it when I racked it and Miller Lite was not the first thing that popped into my head.
It is definitely maltier and much more hop flavor.
So there!
