Just brew it
Just starting to pop the caps on a few. Fantastic! But let it sit in the bottle for min of 4 weeks to truly let it mature. Good stuff.

Hit a very high ABV
This was my very first brew at home ever. I used the Wyeast 1332 and a starter, being the honey lover I am I brought the gravity up to around 1.075... Within the first couple hours it really took off and it got to the point I had to use the blowoff tube with my kit. Even after I transferred to the secondary after 2 weeks. The fermentation seemed to take off again, it was strange. After a week in the secondary I cold crashed for a day and then bottled. After 2 weeks in the bottle I cracked the first bottle and the flavor was very strange I got a little worried. After 8 weeks in the bottle the beer became the best beer I have ever had just amazing. Finished gravity was 1.008 giving this beer a massive 8.7% ABV.So what did I learn from my first homebrew? When you hit such a high ABV you have to really let the yeast clean up after themselves. Also, I probably bottled too early but luckily they finished they're business in the bottle after 8 weeks and made a amazing beer. It disappeared way too fast. Off to the Oak barrel porter next!

a really nice kit
as soon as this kit came out, i wanted to brew it and have it ready for election day. mission accomplished. and to the beer..... nice and malty up front with a nice balanced hop bite and notes of honey. when i brewed this, i swapped out the honey enclosed in the kit with some locally sourced wildflower honey and got a bit heavy handed with it and ended up with a 7.5% beer. even at that, the alcohol is very well hidden. a very nice beer with a story that is a piece of history. you should try it. i,m looking forward to brewing the honey brown next.

Great beer
Beer turned out great. I tasted after 6 weeks (2 weeks each for primary, secondary and bottles). I chilled for 24 hours. The carbonation was spot on. A strong beer with lots of flavors.

100% Approval Rating
Brewed this several months ago- one of my first extraction kits. Used dry yeast, 2 weeks primary, 2 weeks secondary and bottled. After a couple weeks in the bottle the beer was good. Very good. I've now been drinking this for several weeks and it keeps getting better. The flavor is pretty accessible for any beer drinker. I haven't received anything other than positive feedback on what I gave way. Everyone loves it. And don't think the honey makes this a a summer only beer- this is totally drinkable year round.

BEST ANSWER: Hi Gaurav,

Thanks for contacting us. To answer your questions:

1. That's up to you, but I'd recommend another 10 days

2a. 38 degrees

2b. You'll want to force carbonate at roughly 20 psi for 2 days and then lower to 8 psi for serving

2c. see 2b.

3. While a metallic flavor can arise from fermentation being too warm or from exposure to rusted metals, this is probably just a result of the apricot extract. You shouldn't have that issue with this beer.

4. The CO2 itself should be fine, but you may want to refill for fresh gas to ensure a full tank.
Is the White House honey ale (5gal.) available in all grain?
A N on Jun 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it is only available in 5g and 1g extract kits.
What is the shelf life of this kit? I like to buy this but I'm not ready to brew again for awile.
M H on May 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These kits will last for about 4-6 months if stored cool and dry. I hope this helps!
what is the shelf of this kit?
M H on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It depends on how the ingredients are stored. Keeping the hops, yeast, and LME refrigerated will help, while the DME and grains should be kept sealed and dry.These are food items, so they will stale eventually, but they should be good to use up to 3 months or so.
