Extract I take it? Use more light extract and an high attenuating yeast. Maybe some corn sugar but not to much.

AG.. then pils malt and mash at say 148F.

What % are you thinking of?

Just use more LME, unless you want a dryer tasting beer.

You might try 7.5 lb DME, ditch the corn syrup, and use 1-3 lbs honey
