This original recipe brewed by White House staff is both a callback to the favored beverage of our Founding Fathers as well as an opportunity to come together in an election year and share pints across the aisle. More than just simply black and roasty, this porter builds consensus with generous applications of sweet caramel and toasty Munich malts, while moderate bitterness and a pound of honey lets us all find common ground. In a year of divisive politics, we think it’s especially important to remember what we have in common: homebrewing!

Yum!
It's been years since I did an extract brew, but with winter in full gear here in WI, I decided to simplify my brew day with this kit. I am quite pleased! This beer is currently going fast from my kegerator. It's a very nice porter, with just a hint of honey on the nose and finish.

Excellent
I've been brewing ciders for many years now, but this was my first attempt at a proper beer. I used a Wyeast smack pack, and was very happy with the results.I'll definitely be brewing this again at some point, though I will probably add more honey next time, as I tend to favor higher gravities. If I decide to get really crazy, I may even try to oak it.

I've brewed this kit twice - substituting local honey from Luray, Virginia, and adding some locally grown US Fuggle hops at the end of the boil. It is very popular with friends and co-workers...I'm going to make it my signature brew, with the mods.

My Wife's New Favorite!
My life loves dark beers. (Am I a lucky guy, or what?!!?) She has LOVED every stout or porter I have brewed, but she REALLY LOVES this one. Smooth, rich, satisfying -- a great brew.

Worth the next four years!
My new favorite brew. Until now I have stuck with the American wheat but as long as this is available I'll brew each to keep on hand. Spent 7 days in Primary and 8 in secondary, turned out awesome. Bought a turkey fryer to use as a brewer, let me tell you it speeds the brewing process and at $45 probably the best purchase I've made in years! Back to the beer, brew it...

Another winner
Stouts and porters are my favorites and this kit did not disappoint. Hearty and heavy like a porter should be but with a nice hoppy aroma and a little spicy kick to it. Would definitely brew this one again!

ExcellentPorter!
This has been by far the most popular of my four NB kits to date - everyone who has tried it has been very, very impressed. I've had multiple requests to brew more, and my second kit has been ordered! Three weeks in primary, two in secondary. It took three weeks to fully carbonate at ~67F. Very good at that point, and has only improved with more bottle time. Recommended.

Excellent Porter
This is a very tasty and popular beer with my friends. Am currently got the second batch in my secondary and am brewing the White House Honey Ale this weekend. Our first batch of porter came out a bit foamy, but I think I overdid the sugar for bottle carbonation. Won't make that mistake again. Seems to get better with age, but after a month our supply ran out. Out of the 10-12 recipes I've tried, this is in the top 2-3. Will definitely enjoy this in the future.

Now tasting after bottle conditioning
This is as good as I thought it would be. I had to try one after just a week of bottle conditioning (keeping the rest set aside for Thanksgiving dinner) and this beer is really really good. I was afraid that the delicate honey taste that I was getting before bottling was going to be lost in the final product, but it is not. Definitely can taste the honey. Great malty, toasty aroma and flavor with a real sweetness at the end. I will make this again.... Nicely done, NB!

Second time
This is the second time around I am brewing this as I enjoyed it so much the first time around. Yes I do recommend this kit!

The recipe calls for 0.5 oz. of Hallertau hops, but the kit comes with 1 oz. of Hallertau. Should I add all 1 oz. to the brew?

BEST ANSWER: Feel free to do this, as that late addition is mostly aroma and a slight bit of flavor, so it would be quite safe to go ahead and use the whole ounce. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
I would like to beef up the body and color of this after having made one time, how would you recommend to do this?
B U on Mar 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That�?s a great question - I would agree that would improve the beer. My initial reaction is to add an additional malt type - perhaps increasing the unfermentable sugars, but I would be interested in an answer from a more seasoned home brewer.
What is a good final gravity for this beer if you simply follow the original recipe?
D W on Aug 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: An FG of about 1012 - 1018 would be good for this one.
