Looking for a BUD clone, trying to convert the wife to real beer and figured the best way is to make a real BUD. Any suggestions are welcomed.

Most of the online mailorder places have bud clone recipes. It comes with rice syrup to keep it light. However, Bud is a lager and you're probably not quite ready for that if you're a new brewer. You could try a light american ale and go light on the bittering hops.

I was going to suggest mixing urine with water and carbonating it, but a kit will work too.

All kidding aside, though, a lager will be tough unless you've got the equipment. Try something malty (something doesn't have a large hop bill) and see how she likes that.

I have always had good luck introducing women to microbrews with a heffy. My last GF could not get enough of my heffy with a little bit of apricot added. Which reminds me, try a fruit beer as well. They seem to love that stuff.

I'd try an American cream ale recipe. Those tend to be somewhat in the Bud range, low gravity, low hops, but don't require that you lager.

Of all the things to clone...why in god's name would you waste your time with pissweiser? That's like building a fully-outfitted professional kitchen just to cook McDonalds hamburgers. Save yourself the trouble...go down to the 7-11, buy a 12-pack for whatever it costs, probably $2...and then go home and brew something that is actually worth brewing.

Or you could just carbonate and bottle some tap water, put a tiny amount of yellow food coloring in it, and nobody'll ever know the difference.
