We keep seeing these threads trashing BMC, and often times American lagers in general, as junk. Trash beer. Cheap, flavorless crap. Or nasty tasting crap. Or how it's blah blah blah, anyone could brew that swill. And that last remark is often followed with the built in cop out, but who would want to.

Okay, tough guy. Brew it.

I motion that anyone who makes such incredulous comments must brew an American lager on par with that of BMC and submit it to be judged by HBT or an officially recognized BJCP competition. Then they have to do it at least once more. Minimum 5 gallon batches. The scores must then be posted here. It has to take at least bronze, twice, for that person to spout off.

PS
Bud Platinum really does suck. That's the one freebee.

I for one love American and Canadian BMC beers. After all, Why else would any of us be brewing beer if we hadn't drank lots of it from one of the big companies, and liked it!!!! If you didn't like it you would be making wine!

I'm not saying that it's the best beer ever, but I have 8-10 different kinds in the beer fridge at all times. Most are very drinkable, which is more than I can say for a lot of home brews I've been asked to try.

Think about it.

Right on, man. I don't really care for it personally but I won't turn one down at a party. You don't have to like it but you do have to respect what those brewers do on a daily basis year after year.

Hmm, I don't care enough to make that large of a batch of something I don't care for. Or go through the judge etc, but it might be interesting to see what the process for a lite lager is like.... I'll add it to the list once I have temp control equipment.

Dude sometimes I just want to drink a 12 pack of mich light while playing video games. In summer I like to pound some Leinie's lights while mowing the lawn. I don't always like being full or tipsy after a few beers of craft/homebrew beer. Sometimes I just want quantity over quality. Eff it.. the BMC bashing threads are insanely annoying so I just avoid them.

If someone has a bomb recipe and technique for making that kind of stuff at home I'd be all over it.

I have been meaning to try this one for some time now: Recipe

I used to be a BMC trash talker before I reached enlightenment, but in order to make amends I'd like to retroactively take up this challenge. If I opt to have it judged by HBT, what constitutes a successful brew?

I do not like Bud, Miller, Coors or any of their Light/Lite offerings. I will turn it down at a party, because I do not like the taste. I will not waste my time or money to brew something I don't like and have it judged because someone else wants me to prove something.

BMC do suck. And why would I want to brew an adjunct lager when I can brew a real German Lager?

The challenge wasn't to brew it because you like it, it was to PYMWYMI.

I haven't cared much for my homebrew versions. Probably my methods, but in the end I rarely want a light lager anyway. They can be tough to brew if you don't have your process under control and a good recipe. I've decided to part ways with one of my fridges since I really don't see myself needing a dedicated lagering chamber.

Then I think I just want to brew one for the challenge. Maybe a half-batch in the kitchen and then lager in the garage while it's winter.
