As you can see I'm new to this.
Brewing yeast comes in hundreds of varieties. If you used a Cooper's yeast, or something like that, though, it doesn't matter.
Yeah, you got yourself a canned kit that isn't very good, plus added a KG of sugar which thins and dries the beer, leaving it with alcohol but no real body or flavor. Once it finishes up, and you add the priming sugar and bottle it you may find that it's drinkable so don't give up hope yet!
Next time, try to not use those canned kits and crap yeast, and use a quality kit to give you a good quality beer. Those canned kits will make an alcoholic beverage similar to light beer, though, so it may be drinkable when it's done.
