She asked me today that, because I now have a temperature controller hooked up to the beer fridge and can lager, if I could make her something like Corona... I thought I had roped her in with a few pales and a tasty porter in the works soon. Alas, skunky yellow beer she wants.

Sounds like she's endorsing your brewing so why not embrace her request? Make a smallish batch (if you can find a Corona clone) and maybe make a batch of BierMuncher's Centennial ale at the same time. Do a blind taste test of both to help her discovers which she prefers.

Just an idea. Good luck!

Dans idea would work. Or else get some 32's of Corona Extra and acid etch the silk screen off the bottles, and tell you brewed em up special, just for her.

Try the Cream of Three Crops recipe, but use the Mexican Cerveza lager strain.

you have the temp control.
step up your game and make an american light lager. If you can brew that, you can brew anything.

Corona easy clone = Corn syrup, add cheap vodka until you get alcohol levels to where you want them.

Yeah, look at it as a challenge to brew one of the most difficult styles to do.

I make a Corona clone from Austin. It is actually a good light beer that is refreshing in the summer. Not skunky at all.

I also make Stouts, Porters Belguims and other HG brews.

Don't be a hater. Try it. At least she is not telling you to stop brewing.
