This is a great, easy-to-make pilsner-style beer made with ale yeast — no lagering
required. Comes close to many commercial light pilsners, with just a bit more flavor. (5
gallons)

Ingredients:

• 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

Step by Step:

Bring 2 gal. water to boil. Remove from heat and add dry malt, honey, and gypsum. Return
to boil. Total boil is 60 min. Add 0.25 oz. Cascade and boil for 30 min. Add 0.25 oz. Cascade
and boil for 15 min. more. Add Irish moss and boil for 15 min. more. Turn off heat, add 0.5
oz. Cascade hops, and steep for 2 min. Pour into fermenter and top up with cold, preboiled
water. When cooled below 70° F pitch yeast.

Ferment seven to 10 days in primary at 70° F or below, then transfer to secondary and
ferment another seven days. Prime and bottle.

Austin Homebrew Supply also makes some kits that are BMC clones. They are all malt extract with no steeping of grains. I think you will find that with most of the BMC clones.

I would try one of their kits if you are really interested. You will get better results if you lager it so just keep that in mind. If do not have any temperature control, go for a lite Ale like the others suggested.

All Bud-bashing aside, the OP asked a question that has come up here more than a few times. I've got these buds who think it's cool I make beer, but won't try it.....

I'd suggest making a blond ale, or another light ale. Biermunchers Cream of Three Crops and Centennial Blonde are two that come to mind. Just tell them it's a Budweiser Clone. Chances are they'll like it anyway and won't notice the differences. After they drink it and rave about it, you can explain how it differs and maybe open them up to trying other beers.

Ditto,
As much bud bashing that goes on we all would love the skill to brew bud light. Befor brewing you think it's simple cause it's flavorless. Well I't;s must easier to brew a robust porter Full of flavor then to successfully brew budlight. One you need to be able to control lager temps. Thats the easy part. Now perfect your brewing process to brew crystal clear beer with ZERO off flavors. Since there is no flavor to start with, you have no room to hide your off flavors.
Tell you freinds to accurately replicate Bud or budlight, it would cost you too much in equipment and take to long to get that good at brewing.
Brew one of the above mentioned Cream Ales.

Is there an HBT equivalent of Godwin's Law for BMC-Piss comparisons?

I propose we call it "Schlitz' Law", which would state the following:

In any discussion involving mass-produced American beer, the probability of a poster invoking comparisons to piss rapidly approaches 1. Additionally, the probability of any poster invoking Schlitz' law having anything useful to add to the conversation is exactly 0.

I've actually got a recipe that I call "Lawnmower Lite" that I brew for the masses. It's always the first to go and everyone raves about it.

1 can of Muntons Premium Pilsner no-boil kit
1 can of Liquid Rice Extract

Heat 2 gallons of water to 170 deg or so and turn off heat.
Stir in and dissolve the 2 cans until mixed thoroughly.
Pour into fermenter and top off with 3 gallons of cold water.
Pitch Yeast.
After fermentation, rack to secondary for one week to clarify.

Very quick and easy.....

If you like Budweiser and want to brew, go for it. It will be hard to duplicate, but every batch is a learning experience. The important part is that you have fun and learn something, not what other people think of the type of beer you brew.

I guarantee as soon as you brew your first batch, you'll be trying to figure out how/when to brew your second batch. Then you'll love variety as much as the next person on here.


A judge at a local comp was saying that Bud Light pre-pasturized is actually not half bad anyway.

If you want to try and trick them into drinking something that is flavorless instead of having a metallic/sour aftertaste (quite an upgrade if you ask me), try this: Light Ale-Extract | MoreBeer

I see either as kind of a waste to brew though.
LOL I'm doing the light ale kit from more beer right now. the color alone may scare his buddies off.
