1 Gallon Small Batch White House Starter Kits

SKU: U7805
20 Review(s)

Two original recipes brewed by White House staff and shared with the world as Northern Brewer kits.

Honey Ale

Built on a big foundation of malt with strong tones of biscuit and toffee, White House Honey Ale plays down hop bitterness and plays up the fruity and caramelly aspect of English malt and yeast. A late addition of pure honey is the signature calling card of this recipe, imbuing a floral aroma and lightening the body. Ale to the chief!

Honey Porter

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!

    A good drinkable beer Review by Marc
    Brewed this as my first batch of home brew, and despite some temperature control issues it turned out well. I ended up with a very drinkable beer. (Posted on 11/3/13)
    Great starter kit! Review by Jacob
    This is a perfect starter kit for someone looking to get into home brewing or someone looking to expand their recipes and looking to try new things.

    The instructions were easy to follow and the NB team was super helpful. Mine arrived with a broken part and the crew put a new one in the mail the next morning with no questions asked! (Posted on 11/3/13)
    High quality, fair price, potential for expansion. Review by Andrew
    I spent quite some time shopping around the internet looking into small batch brewing. While there are numerous options, the Northern Brewer package seemed to be both high quality and fair priced.

    As someone new to homebrewing, I feel good about the manageable initial financial investment while retaining the option for continued expansion. There are many potential additions that do make life easier but you have everything essential from the get-go.

    Lastly, you can't beat this sort of small batch kit when living in a tiny apartment. I keep all my brewing equipment and ingredients discreetly hidden because nothing is bigger than the 1 gallon carboy.

    If you are considering 5 gallon homebrewing and just want to try it out, consider a this a small trial kit. If you are into small batch brewing, Northern Brewer is a solid relationship to develop. (Posted on 10/22/13)
    Amazing Review by Josh
    This was my first brew and I was amazed. I couldn't have asked for more and I am now truly hooked on home brewing! (Posted on 10/1/13)
    Good Starter Kit Review by Mutt
    This was my very first kit. I had never tried to brew my own and was intimidated. This kit made it easy and was packaged well for "newbies". The batch turned out nice with good aromas and nice flavor. Definitely enjoyed it and recommend it to others as a way to explore the craft without a major investment or learning curve.

    Good for Sampling Brews Review by David
    I bought this to try out different brews on NB 1 gallon batches then I buy the 5 gallon kit if I like it. You get normally 8 12oz beers to the 1 gallon batches. Easy to use, with easy clean up. I really like it. (Posted on 9/19/13)
    Great First Step! Review by Mark
    I bought this kit because I was unsure if homebrewing was for me, and it seemed like a great compromise to buying a 5 gallon kit. This kit is a great way to get your feet wet and to understand the basics of brewing your own beer. The instructions cover all the bases and you are given everything you need to make some great beer!

    After a couple of extract batches, I can say that I am definitely hooked and look forward to upgrading to a 5 gallon kit! (Posted on 9/18/13)
    Good beer for my first try! Review by Kyle
    Definitely have learned the to-do's and not to-do's, however, we fermented this would a very good concept of temperature control (in TN during the summer, inside though) and it still turned out good. We ended up with less than the volume we'd like to have had, but nonetheless, it's a straight up good beer.

    I've moved on to 5gal brews now and will probably buy this again. I can only imagine how good it'll taste while being kept at 66F through the first week of fermentation! (Posted on 9/15/13)
    Easy to Brew Review by Kevin
    I got the kit and everything was easy to use and understand. Instructions were clear and the equipment was the right fit. I have brewed two batches so far and can't wait to taste them. (Posted on 8/19/13)
    Fun & Easy Review by Diana
    I am new to home brewing and thought I would stick a toe in with the 1 gallon kit. I have now brewed four extract batches and plan on upping my game to do small batch all grain brews.

    I think the 1-gallon method is excellent for trying brewing, but I also think it's great if you are not sure what to do with 5 gallons of beer and all of the attendant equipment. Further, I have way less stress worrying about 1 gallon worth of work and materials than I would 5 gallons. Overall, I think the 1 gallon kit is the way to go if you want to stay small scale and be able to experiment with lots of different varieties.

    Also, in terms of the kit itself, NB has assembled a set that comes with high quality equipment and everything you need to get started with extract brewing. You will probably need another $100 worth of equipment to upgrade to all-grain, but this is a great, low-price way to get started! (Posted on 7/12/13)
