Now that would be worth tasting...Bud on Steroids!!

Or a BudIPA???

I did that with a batch BM's Centennial Blond; kicked up the Ibus and dry hopped a bit. It was awesome. All the crispness and lightness of a corned beer, with kick ass hopiness..

Enjoy!

Recipes in the database should be tried and true. The user who posted it is pretty highly regarded. So, it's worth it.

Does it really take that long for primary and secondary fermentation? What is the shortest time I could get away with?

Don't forget to add Acetaldehyde


"Acetaldehyde is typically inappropriate in any style, though Budweiser has integrated it within their flavor profile with obvious success intentionally."

I am going to brew this but I think I will use 7# German Pills (opinions?) instead of the 2 row. How does that sound?

Anything you would change if you brewed this again?

How much rice hulls should I use to keep my mash from sticking with all that flake?
