for the amount of work and time that goes into brewing, I cant justify brewing coors light when you can run to wally world and get a 30 pack for $16... just my .02

Coors is an American light lager, not an ale.

If you can make a lager, the "recipe" for a Coors Light or Miller Light would be very simple but it'd be hard to do with extract because not all adjuncts come in extract form. I've seen rice solids (instead of flaked rice in the mash), and corn sugar, so it may be possible but I'm not 100% sure as I"ve never done it.

Flavorless American Lagers are pretty difficult to make properly. If you're calling it an ale, I'm going to guess that you don't have the knowledge to properly make one. Just sayin'

Was going to chastise your bluntness - then I read how he spelled Coors in his thread title and decided I'd shut my mouth...
