I love lagers like Stella, Grain Belt Nordeast or coors light(my budget beer). What are some good ales to brew that I would like?

Hard to say... you haven't told us what kind of BEER you like yet.



(But seriously, look at some basic pale ale recipes first. There's an entire section of these forums devoted to recipes for all styles - look at American pale ales, or maybe English and/or Irish ales if you want something a little different.)

Those are all lagers or pilsners, both of which styles require some advanced techniques and concise temperature control.

I would start you off with cream ales, american pale ales (APAs), wheats, and hefewiezens. Both are NOT lagers/pilsners, but they are lighter styles with lighter character than most other styles.

Once you've got 3-4 ale batches under your belt and understand things like fermentation temperture control, yeast pitch rates, and oxygenation, you'll be ready for lagers and pilsners.
