Default Coors Light? Any Suggestions

My bother-in-law wants me to make him something similar to coors light? Any ideas?

I thought a 20 minute boil kit then water it down....

I would just go buy him some Coors light :P Get it in the 5L mini keg and just tell him you refilled it. Don't forget to frost-brew it!

To be honest, it isn't worth the money, time or effort to recreate Coors light. Far cheaper to just buy it, just brew him something delicious and get him drinking ale.

Just buy him a case.
Then, offer him some homebrew and get him acclimated to real beer taste...

i would try light lme or dme or 2row to an og of about 1050. if using extract, you might want to replace alittle with some corn sugar to make sure fg is low. if allgrain, just mash low.
.75oz of low aa hop like saaz or mt hood at 60mins
us05 or notty fermented in the 60s

probably wont be a coors light clone but i bet he'll still like it

just make any lightly hopped ale, and top it off with seltzer.

Look for a recipe which uses a lot of adjuncts in place of malt, that way you will end up with a substantial lack of flavor and body. Sugar and corn should be in there as fermentables.

Instead of using DME or LME, use about 7 pounds of urine. Might work... Just saying.

try this recipe: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f62/mill...hopped-123937/

which actually turns out a decent cream ale that is very similar to a lager. i prefer to increase the IBU and hop character, but if you do it as is, i'm sure he'll be able to drink a glass or two. i've also been not using the amylase enzyme, starting with a higher gravity to get me around 1.048. also, mash low and you'll get us-05 or notty to finish it dry 1.006-1.008.
