Default Malt Liquor

Any body have a clone for a Malt Liquor?

I know its a funny question, but its for pure novelty.

Also what the hell makes a malt liquor different than say bud or miller? Is it the addition of more rice and corn?

A malt liquor is any alcoholic beverage containing a portion of fermented malted barley. All beers are malt liquors.

it's just more alcohol. "malt liquor" only exists due to US laws that state that beer over a certain alcohol content has to be labeled as malt liquor.

Like Walker said from a historical perspective on the old Schlitz Malt Liquor etc . But does that law still exist with all the new higher ABV brews you can buy nowadays? Or maybe it's ignored...

Any beer imported into the US that is over 5% alcohol is supposed to be labeled "Malt Liquor" so by definition it's any brew over 5%.

How about the standard construction of typical Malt Liquors?
Are they Lagers with a assload of corn and rice?

Brew Your Own has a recipe for malt liquor on there site (http://byo.com/recipe/1453.html). According to this recipe, to make an American Pilsner you dilute five gallons of malt liquor with one gallon distilled water. Perhaps malt liquor is the base to American pilsners, who knows if this is the way they do it at the brewery.

FYI... I had some Weihenstephaner hefeweizen that was labeled "Malt Liquor" a while ago.

Step 1. Urinate in the carbory. (this may take several urinations to make 5 gallons) Don't bother boiling it.

Step 2. Hock a few big loogies in there. The bigger the beter.

Step 3. Use 6 packs of dried expired ale yeast, and ferment.

step 4. When bottling time comes, use 40 ounce bottles and wrap them in a small paper bag. (for insulation purposes)

Ummmmmmm LOL just kidding.

I figured you guys might find these sites amusing though.
