add some amylase enzyme in a secondary for two weeks. There's a recip for a little yellow fizzy BMC clone that uses it. takes the FG down real low

You need to adjust the mash to take away the malt character or ferment to a lower F.G.

Can you brew lagers? Mash reeeeeally low (146ish) and use about 20% corn or rice, and use an American lager yeast.

I made a light hybrid lager with WL029 German ale/kolsh yeast. I used german & Czech hops for that light spicy thing that,mixed with the profile created by the yeast,made a light crislpness that's been pretty good. The best part is the yeasts' ideal range is 65-69F! Makes a light malt profile that's pretty well balanced with the hops.
