YMK Bud Lite

Home Beer Brewing photo for YMK Bud Lite

A summertime favorite! A light bodied, sparkling, thirst quenching brew. This is as close to the original as a homebrew can get without being too embarrassed. I will confess that I brew and drink this recipe because sometimes you just want to be one of the boys or ladies.



Place 1 gallon of water into the brew kettle. Bring the water to a boil. Stir the dry malt extract into the kettle and boil for 5 minutes. Stir the kettle frequently to prevent darkening the wort.

Turn off the heat and stir in the American Lite extract. Keep stirring until the malt is completely dissolved.

Add one gallon of cold water to the kettle. Pour remaining water into your fermenter then add the cooled wort. Pitch yeast when temperature is between 70 and 80 degrees.

Ferment and bottle using your usual methods.
