I was looking for recipes the other day and came across a bud light clone.

Discovering this begs the question "Why would you want to clone piss water"?

Don't most of us make our own beer because it is good?

Just seem like a waste of effort and good grains.

Ha!

Recipe: 5 gallons of seltzer water, yellow food coloring.

Actually, by all accounts, brewing up an American Light Lager and having it turn out well is supposed to be extremely difficult. So I suppose, some might do it for the challenge.

But yea... I wouldn't waste my time, money, or effort. Shrug.

1) Because someone said, "You'd never be able to brew it."

2) Because someone said, "I like (insert beer here). Can you brew it?"

3) Because s/he can.

Easy:

1. Drink lots of good beer.
2. Save empty bottles
3. Piss in empty bottles
4. Bud light.

Why not? You might not like it, I don't like it. But there are A LOT of people in this country who think it is the greatest thing since sliced bread. A lot of people will only drink it no matter what so for I'm sure someone out there who wants to make something that their friends will drink they had to try and see if they can. Also if you can make it maybe you can find a way to make it better. One of those reverse engineering things.

I'd love to brew a light American lager. But I don't have good enough temperature control or a vessel big enough to make as big of a starter that I'd need.

The recipe I'd use is the Light Lager that won best of show at 2012 NHC. That's right, a light lager beat out every other category/subcategory at the largest homebrew competition in the world, judged by the best judges in the world.

I guess I've never had an American light lager that turned out well. LOL.

Do you know of a link to that recipe? I'd actually be very interested to look at it.

Screw it, I'd make it! Just for funzies. And because it wouldn't go wasted, I know plenty of people that would drink it. Myself included.
