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!

Kit includes:

  • 1 gallon fermentation jug with cap and airlock
  • Mini Auto-siphon and tubing
  • Bottle filler
  • 8 oz Easy Clean cleanser
  • Bottle capper and caps
  • Your choice of recipe kit
  • FREE "Homebrewing 100: The Small Batch Way" DVD
  • You supply:

  • 2 gallon kettle
  • Approx. 1 dozen pry-off 12 oz beer bottles
  • 1 Gallon Small Batch White House Starter Kits

    Tastes Great Review by Jason
    Rating
    Probably more filling too. I just bottled my first batch of this yesterday (my first partial after doing two Mr Beer rounds that got me interested in this hobby). This kit was great, though the fermentation lock felt a little frail. I wish I had more room in my kitchen when prepping everything, but it made for a great brew day morning - house had a great smell to it that the wife didn't mind.

    This beer really does taste great, I ended up 'tasting' about 1/3 of a bottle because it was that good. I definitely recommend this to people just starting to brew, its easy if you follow the instructions, just be patient.

    If this conditions well in the bottle, I'm doing more of these for sure. I just hope NB will send me the kit when I order it this time, instead of waiting 4 days before finally sending it out. (Posted on 2/23/14)
    User Friendly, a few hiccups Review by Charlotte

    This was my gift to my boyfriend for Christmas, and we brewed together this was a little hiccup during fermenting, some overflow into the airlock, but at the end of the day we fixed that, let it sit for a month and now have a nice honey ale that is a bit darker than expected but really nice! I was impressed and glad I chose northern brewer, we all know what he is getting for valentines day (Posted on 2/13/14)
    Great buy for anyone looking to start a new hobby Review by Joshua

    This kit is a great buy if you are looking to see if this hobby is for you.
    Not only does it come with all of the accessories you will need, it also comes with a gallon kit for your first batch.

    When you buy this kit you don't just get a kit and a recipe you get experts help and amazing directions. Utilize the customer service if you have any issues. By far the best site and very reasonable prices. (Posted on 2/2/14)

    First time homebrewing. Best Christmas gift ever! Overall the kit was very easy to follow. My honey porter is fermenting as we speak and it smells amazing so far. Hardest part of the process is patience! (Posted on 1/18/14)

    Good Starter Kit Review by Andy

    Got this kit as a Christmas gift from my daughter. Instructions were easy to understand and kept me on task. Love the dvd and Brew TV. Just bottled yesterday so cannot comment on taste but learning the extract brewing process was a great experience. (Posted on 1/12/14)
    Great way to start. Review by Bruce

    I bought 2 of these kits to give as gifts at Christmas. Both of them went to the "other men" in my 2 daughters life. They always love to taste my beers so I figured it was time to return the favor. :-) The kits shipped fast and where well packed. Now I'm just waiting to taste the fruits of their labor. Cheers!

    Good For Sampling. Needs to include a brush. Review by Justin
    Rating
    The 1 gallon kit is perfect for sampling a brew before going for the 5 gallon. This way, you don't get stuck with 5 gallons of a beer that you may not care for the taste of.

    I wish this kit came with a carboy brush, or I was at least STRONGLY recommend to purchase one. The foam from the Hef I brewed would be impossible to clean off without the "L" shaped brush. (Posted on 12/3/13)
    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)
