In order to make malt liquor, you will need:

  • Five gallons water
  • Six pounds dark brown sugar
  • Two cups black molasses
  • One quarter cup bread yeast
  1. Boil the five gallons of water. Regular tap water will work fine.
  2. Pour the six pounds of dark brown sugar into the boiling water. Reduce the water to a simmer. Stir the sugar to dissolve in the water.
  3. Add the black molasses to the sugar and water mixture. Stir for a couple minutes.
  4. Allow it to cool. Once the substance has cooled completely, agitate the mixture with yeast. Bring the liquor to a boil. This is necessary for distillation to occur.
  5. Allow it to sit for about two months. Agitate the malt liquor here and there. Once time has elapsed, the malt liquor will ferment and be ready to enjoy!
