Default Ok, I'm new to brewing beer. But what would this get me?

If I use bakers yeast (I know big no no), molasses, powdered sugar, and distilled water? I know how to still it and prepare it and everything. Probably let it ferment for 2 weeks in a warm dry place with a valve especially since bakers yeast produces more carbon dioxide than alcohol.

It would get you nasty hooch, nothing remotely beerlike.

And we don't talk about distilling in this forum, since here in America, it is illegal, and we respect the forum too much, just like we repect the art and craft of brewing to do what you want to do.

Hooch thread reported to mods.

Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

Something that will require your namesake.

I'm confused why you'd say the bakers yeast is a nono but not making a "beer" with no malt.....oh wait. you're making 'shine.

As mentioned, we don't discuss distilling here. Try http://www.homedistiller.org/.

If you have questions about making beer this is definitely the right place though.
