Default Firefly fans? I want to make Mudders Milk

Fans of the show Firefly will recognize a fictional brew called Mudders Milk, described as "all the protein, vitamins and carbs of your grandma's best turkey dinner, plus 15 percent alcohol."

I'm thinking the unholy love child of hefeweizen and a cream stout to give it a thick and milky flavor, maybe topped up with brandy if I really wanted to hit 15%. Brew them separate then blend or try to hit them both at once?

I'd go with everclear for bumping alcohol content. I am not sure how the Brandy flavor would change the beer. Everclear is a bit safer as it adds no flavor. I use it to fortify my port wines at a ratio of 1 pint per 3 gallons.

Here a recipe I found. I think you might want to try a glass first.

Mudder's Milk

Nutrition Info
Calories: 482.9
Fat: 7.2g
Carbohydrates: 25.3g
Protein: 35.1g
Ingredients

1 litre (1 quart) soy milk, plain
360ml (12 oz) stout such as Guinness, or other dark, full bodied beer
64g (1/2 cup) wheat germ
112g (1/2 cup) brewers yeast
180ml (6 oz) grain alcohol
or vodka to taste
Directions

Mix the soy milk, stout beer, wheat germ and brewers yeast in a 2 litre/quart pitcher, stirring well. Chill before serving. Now, either add the grain alcohol to the whole batch to achieve the 15% alcohol that Jayne mentions or mix the "milk" with vodka to taste. Serve in rustic pottery mugs and get ready to sing "The Hero of Canton"!

Serving Size: 2-3 (3 listed)

Number of Servings: 3

I guess everclear would be the way to go, but I'm not sure I'd actually want it at 15% just to fit the quote. It might be undrinkable.

Love this idea!
What if you made a wheatwine? There's a brewery near here that makes a beer called Pilgrim's Dole:

Heck - the guy on the bottle looks like he's wearing a Jayne hat. Doesn't quite hit 15% (the bottle says 12%). I think that would make a fine Mudder's Milk.

If I made this and offered to mail a sixer to Nathon Fillion and Adam Baldwin, think they'd drink it or assume some crazed stalker fan was trying to poison them?
