Well, a while back i had a few threads about trying to make a coors light clone. Despite a few of you who had some doubts, it came out tasting very very good, and went over well with some buddies who actually preferred my beer over coors. Here it is:


It took about 10 days to ferment (@ 55 deg F) until a stable FG was achieved. Then had it lagering at 35 deg for 40 days. Even though i made this beer using all DME it came out exactly like i imagined it would. Dry, yet a nice malty aftertaste leaving it very drinkable for a hot summer day or a good "dart shooting" brew.

For those of who would like to try it out, here is the shizznit:

- Munton's Extra Light DME 3 lbs.
- Rice Syrup Solids 1 lb
- Corn Sugar 1 lb
- 1oz Saaz Hops
- Saflager S-23 (lager Yeast)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
OG is about 1.042-1.046
FG is about 1.004-1.008
135 calories per 12oz beer
9 IBU's
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Boil 2.5 gal of water then toss in the DME, Rice Solids and corn sugar as usual, once back up to boil, throw in the hops for 60 min. Flame out, chill to 60 deg, then ferment at 52-58 deg F.

After active fermentation is complete and your hydro reading is stable, lager it at 35 deg for 40 days or longer.


On another note, thanks to all who helped me out through my first beer i create on my own.

It looks nice. What would you say are the major differences between actual Coors Light and your version?

Looks like a tasty brew alright. Seems like you have nailed it. I might suggest that next time you save 2 pounds of DME and add it in the last 10 minutes of the boil. This would help to make it even lighter in colour.
Congrats on making a style that even for experienced brewers is hard to do.

Mine, i would say, has a slight malty taste at the end. Mine also was ever so slightly hazy. Next time ill use Irish moss or something to clear it up or perhaps let it lager longer.

Not a bad beer for using exract.

Coors light clone? Did you just pee straight into the bottles or set the urine in firmintaion for a few hours and mix with water?

Sorry, it's Coors, had to go there. I am glad it turned out to your liking.

I'd like to add to the HBT unwritten rule book.

Don't be an unprovoked douche to a fellow brewer...just sayin'

Oh, and when being an unprovoked douche to a fellow brewer, use spellcheck...

Beer geeks to BMC chuggers, we all get sneered at by wine snobs!!! We gotta stick together

I'm glad this turned out for you, I would also suggest late DME addition to lighten it up a bit more. as for clarifying it, try Irish moss or whirflock tablets, this should assist in clearing it up. The big pisser is the time it takes to get a lager to the tap to see how it turned out. Again congrats on your first Lager!

Thats cool!

That would probably satisfy all the "non home brew" friends who refuse to try my brews!
