This Bud's For You w/ Superior Lager dry yeast :: Midwest Supplies Homebrewing and Winemaking Supplies

midwest has it....

25 plus S&S for 5 gallons so i would guess it would come out to around 15-20 a case.

How much is a 30 pack?

bud is about $19. a 30 pack here.

I did both the kits from morebeere. They were ok, and like firstnten said, a little dark.
Shared some, and the review was"it's not bad"

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.
Already established. We call it Evan!'s law. Previous instance here.

Looking at the online price list for the local beer store...

24 pack of Bud, Miller, or Coors is $16. A 30 pack of Stroh's or Gennesse is $14.

Well here in NFLD a 12 pack of any BMC costs $23. Now that's expensive.

I'm with a lot of the others. Brewing or trying to brew a BMC beer is costly and chances are that it will take many moons to get it right. You need to do all grain and have exact temperture control over all your processes along with a fresh suply of ingredients and a good recipie in order to duplicate the blandness that BMC has.
I make lagers and have temperture control for fermentation and lagering and also do all grain. I have yet to come close to this style as I frequently use more hops than that style requires.

But you are on the right track in trying to learn about something before actually brewing what could be a disappointing facsimilie.

1 can of Muntons Premium Pilsner no-boil kit

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.....
I bet that is good.

I made pretty much the same thing with a Can of Cooper's Canadian Blonde Ale and 2#s rice syrup solids and it ended up somewhere between Bud and Bud Light. Everyone liked it.

I've tried to do an All Grain and Rice Adjunct similar to Budweiser a few times and I've made good beer, but I always seem to over do it.

Next time I try and brew it ( Saturday ? ) this is what I'm going with:

3# American 6 Row
3# Flaked Rice
2# American 2 Row

Mash for 1 hour at 140, then Mash at 147 for 30 minutes.

Approximately 3/4 oz of Sterling Pellets for 45 minutes.

And WLP840 yeast with some Beano in the fermenter.

I'm getting better at making it, I think the trick is not starting with too high a gravity - its easier to dry the beer out if you keep the gravity down to begin with. And you've also got to avoid the temptation to do something unique, and ignore the "piss" comments.

The extract recipe is very easy. The hardest part is resisting the urge to boil it.

I would imagine making this style in all grain would be pretty hard.

I agree, if you make a homebrew with "drinkability", like a blonde of common, you could turn your firends on to homebrew. If you make a bud clone they are just going to compare it to the original and I dont really see the thrill in that.
