Brewing with BMC
My Home Brew club is having party that's called Convert A Bud Drinker.

We are planning to brew a beer of some sort (TBD) where we use Bud lite, Miller Lite, or Silver Bullets as our boil water.

No kidding!!! :rockin:

I'm guessing it will be an extract, maybe something like a bigger pale ale.

Just curious if any of you have tried this?

Let know what you think, even if you just want to be a post whore. :D

You guys are using a light BMC for your boil water? Never heard of that before, sounds interesting, but also a little disturbing. :)

Thats a dumb idea...In fact very dumb...are you kidding

I'll be interested to hear how it turns out. I don't think it's very practical, but what the hell give it a shot.

+1 on what the hell are you thinking?!?!

for one thing beer has way too low of a Ph for use as water for brewing. im sure other people can tell you everything else thats horribly wrong with that idea.

No kidding!!! Dumb as it might sound. Looked at the club minutes. They were considering it for an AG batch.

I was always taught to only use tap water for brewing if it tastes good.

Very disturbing.

I see this as way to ridicule bud/miller/coors drinkers. Insinuating that they are drinking something close to water.

A keg of Coors brewing water is $88. :D

The pH may not be good for mashing or sparging but its no different than some peoples municipal water. We could always add some gypsum to bring the pH down...

To be honest with you, as wacky as this may be you have to admit it would be fun to do.

I thought its a fitting part to woo the BMC crowd over to the dark side.

I would never want to pony up the dough myself to try this.

It will be a novelty to say we used water, I mean beer, to make better beer. :D
