Drive to your local beer store. Select Corona from the fridge. Bring Corona to cashier. Pay for Corona. Transport Corona back home. Drink Corona.

Well if/when you do it dont forget to skunk it. Im not saying this to be a dick about corona but if you want it to taste the same then you must skunk it.

Well I could see these comments coming and certainly enjoy reading them.

I am sad that you are trying to brew a corona, hopefully your just making it for your friends, so they don't drink your good beer though.

Sorry for the sarcasm, but at least you didn't ask how to make a bud light.

It's an exceedingly hard style to make as well and if some of the previous posters tried to make it they might sing a different tune.

The Jamil podcast on the style has some great information and would be where I would start.

Actually, I happen to really like Corona, but I like Sol better. No harm in asking. The thread referred to above has some good info in it, check it out. And, good luck. A beer that light is really difficult to replicate.

I didn't say anything about the difficulty... Any off flavors are going to shine right through and attenuation needs to be really high. I just said that making Corona is a waste of time as it is about the same cost to just buy it (I think, I'm not sure what it costs).

Oh I agree that it would be very hard to replicate this beer. I was just coming from a couple of different angles, I have had plenty of Coronas before and thought there may be a better option. As others have pointed out too, it is a fairly cheap bear, at least in Cali where there are a lot of drinkers of Corona. You can usually get the 24 pack for around $18-$19 if you look for a sale. I am sure it is a simple grain bill and possibly cheap as an all grain depending on the yeast and needs a large starter I am guessing.
