Malt Liquor, eh? Isn't that essentially an amped-up American Pilsner? That's what I'd do - make a CAP to come in at ~7-8%ABV. You want 70% malt to 30% adjunct, IBU less than 20, and you want a lager. Here's a starting point. Rice solids can be replaced with rice syrup, corn sugar or even cane sugar.

7 lbs extra-light LME
3 lbs rice solids

0.5 oz Cluster 7%AA - 60
0.25 oz Cluster 7%AA - 20

OG 1074
IBU 18

Ferment cool with a very clean ale yeast if you can't lager.

To keep the color as pale as possible, boil as large a quantity as your setup can handle, and add the majority of the malt extract late. Search HBT for "late extract addition", and you'll encounter any number of threads that'll walk you through it.

Cheers,

Bob

5 gallons regular tap water (boiled)
6 pounds dark brown sugar (disolved in the water)
2 Cups black mollases (disolved in water)
(allow to cool before adding yeast)
Add about 1/4 cup or 1/8 cup of regular bread yeast (dont knock it because its bakers yeast)

Chuck it all in a bucket agitate the yeast in and then agitate when ever you feel like it. Let sit for two months and then get to enjoying it.

It's called a wash. I imagine you need some fancy copper to make it drinkable.

Why is that? You mean to distill it? (not that anyone is talking about doing such a thing...)

Wash (distilling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) That's the best I could find about a wash.

Yes, I think that was a tongue-in-cheek joke.

Yah, a wash is what you then heat in the distillation process. I wouldn't call the posted recipe "malt" anything because it has no malt. With a better yeast choice the posted recipe is basically the wash for distilling rum.

Distilling is bad, mmmmkay?

Distilling is bad? I thought getting caught distilling was bad. (Quiet Pinkey, I must now rethink my plan to take over the world!)

+1 on the Mickey's! I've even been known to enjoy a Little Kings now and then.

I say do it. If you like Malt liquor, even for nostalgia's sake, then brew it. That's the beauty of the hobby. You can brew something that might offend the heck out of some of us (zima anyone?), but if you like it, that's what matters the most.

And on the positive side, it will be a challenge. Kind of like brewing a good light American lager.

Just make sure to pour a little liquor for the homies.

I LOLed

Beer in a 40oz suddenly becomes Malt Liquor.

40ozMaltLiquor.com :: Little King's Cream Ale

If you want a laugh, Malt Liquor judging for the discriminating pallet.

This **** ain't nearly as bad as I thought it would be (at least taste wise). I don't know what the 'cream ale' **** is all about...I was right, this is similiar to Mickeys. It's also similar to some import I've had but can't put my finger on. Not bad at all, I wouldn't drink/buy it again but I'm pleasantly surprised, espically considering how much I thought this might suck. I drank this **** while watching the final episode of Dawson's Creek and crying like a baby. I wouldn't drink this again, but if I did all those memories of Jen dying would come flooding back and probably draw a tear to my eye. this is a 4 of 10, much too weak and useless to buy again. i think the name is kind of gay and i dont like its image. worthless. Buzz: C-, Taste: B-
