Malt Liquor Recipes (All Grain)???
 
OK, don't ask why, but I've searched and only found one good all-grain recipe for a malt liquor (OE clone). Any other good recipes out there?

I'm guessing there's a reason why there are no malt liquor recipes out there...

Just brew a Maibock... ;)

I find it odd that an OE clone equates to a GOOD malt liquor recipe. There is nothing good about OE.


Now Colt 45...now we're talking! :)

Screw both of them Mickeys is the only way to go.

Because Charlie Papazian Created the clone recipe...so therefore it HAS to be good... :D

It's the homebrewing equivalent of being blessed by the pope or something.

The term "good" when applied to a malt liquor recipe is certainly subjective. Sort of like good recipe for junk food. This will probably get you a "better" product than you can buy:

60% pale/lager/6-row or some combination
20% flaked maize
20% sugar
Use the correct poundage with your brewery to get an OG of ~1.070

Bitter to ~12 IBU with any lager hop; add 1/8 oz at the end if you want that extra special something in the nose.

Ferment with your favorite general purpose lager yeast and get out the brown bags. :mug:

Malt Liquor is simply a regular American lager with a higher alcohol content. "Malt Liquor" is actually a legal definition, depending on what state you are buying it in.

I've actually considered doing this before too, and my plan was to just use a bunch of 6-row, mash really low, minimal bittering hops, and beano in the fermenter. I hadn't settled on a yeast, or if I actually would put the time into lagering it.

edit: almost forgot, use plenty of adjunct. Probably rice syrup.

Dad's Little Helper from Rogue.com
Tasting Notes: This ain’t your Dad’s malt liquor. Brewmaster John Maier has Roguerized the recipe by adding 40% Midwest corn, lightly hopping it with Oregon Crystal Hops, and then lagering it at a warmer temperature to help bring out the sweet, crisp flavors of the corn.

6 Ingredients: Malts: Harrington & Klages.
Hops: Crystal.
Specialty: Flaked Corn.
Yeast & Water: Czech Pils Yeast & Free Range Coastal Water.
Specs: 17 PLATO
25 IBU
77 AA
10 Lovibond

It mentions a higher fermentation temp; I have heard this before. What temp should you ferment?
