Default Old English Clone?

OK, you can rip on me or you can provide an answer.

My friends and I *LOVE* malt liquor. I love me some Old English. Has anyone ever made a good OE800 clone? I would love to make some for poker night. It can't be too hard, it's just malt liquor. I'm assuming that's just a lot of malt, no grains (extract brewer here) and cheap hops.

Also, has anyone ever used 40oz bottles for brewing? How do the twist offs rate for re-use?

That's what they call an oxymoron.

Here's a good read for the lover of the 40 dawg: http://home.earthlink.net/~ggghostie/maltliquor.html

I'd start with a basic cream ale recipe, then up the alcohol using sugar. The biggest difference is that malt liquors are lagered, so you'd need a different yeast and fermenting routine.

Sounds like a lot of work for a crappy beer, IMO.

In American any beer over 5% is supposed to be labeled "malt liquoer"

The only ones I remember were the ones for St. Ides, featuring Snoop Dog.

While I like DFH and Sam, he's the only guy I know who can sell a primarily adjunct lager for those prices. He makes good beer, but that's straight up marketing savvy.

Cheesefood- I bottle in 40's. That way, there's some for me, and some for my homies. I use the Miller bottles. I twist them as tight as I can after filling, then check them in a couple of days. Once, while checking the new batch, I heard a hissing. One of the bottles wasn't sealed. Twisted the cap a little more and it was fine. 40's are great for when you only want one . You can also honestly tell the nice officer that you only had a couple. He'll wonder why you can't stand up.
You're lucky to have friends to help you empty the bottles. I have to force myself through the Miller and remind myself that it's for the bottle !
Why in the Hell would you want an OE clone anyway? Everyone knows that Mickey's is the only malt liquor anybody should worry about.
