Use 15 gallon plastic garbage can with clip on lid. You need:

Approximately 6 oz. hops

3 lbs. extract of malt

9 lbs. granulated sugar

1 tablespoon molasses

1-1/2 teaspoons granulated yeast.

Place in vessel with approximately 2 gallons water, or more if
vessel is large enough, and bring to boil.  Then turn down to
simmer for about 45 minutes, steeping hops into liquid during
this period as hops will sit on top of the water; otherwise,
flavor will be too weak.

Put malt, raw sugar and molasses into plastic bin.  Then strain
hops liquid through parachute silk or cheesecloth to remove all
sediment and add liquid to contents of bin.  Stir thoroughly
with wooden paddle to completely dissolve malt and sugar into

Place the bin in a position where it can be kept for a week
undisturbed at 70F.  Fill up with lukewarm water to within 2
inches of top of container.  Temperature of brew now be about 70
to 80F.  Sprinkle yeast evenly over surface and seal.  Beer
will work for 7 to 10 days.  A thick white broth will appear
after the first 8 hours and gradually die, towards the end of
the time.

When working has ceased, take 8 dozen clean 26 oz. bottles and
put one level teaspoon of white sugar into each bottle.  Drain
off liquid into bottles taking care not to disturb too much.
(This will disturb sediment and make liquid cloudy).  Cap
bottles tightly and correctly and store upright for 3 weeks

Cool in refrigerator in upright position and pour gently into
glass mug for serving.  Sediment also forms in bottle   If beer
is too lively, too much yeast has been added or if bottled
before, it had ceased working.  Flavor of beer can be softened
by adding 4 oz. of barley to the hops when bottling.  Color can
be darkened by increasing amount of molasses.

 Good Lawd amighty!  12 pounds of fermentables with a *3:1* sugar/malt
 ratio?  <shudder>

 Not sure I'd drink this as beer.  Probably better off running it through
 the still a couple of times.
