Product Details

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 an ample dose 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: Steeping grains and mesh bag, 1 lb. DME, hops, 2 oz. honey, yeast, fizz drops.

Very Smooth And Tasty!
I enjoy a porter occasionally and this recipe was very good.
Had a hint of chocolate, kind of creamy and I could not believe the head it poured. I will definitely buy this recipe again!

Hopefull Anticipation
Fermentation looked nice. Just bottled it using local honey to prime it. Hopefully it turns out well.

I can tell this is going to be a great tasting beer. I just put it in my fermenter, i licked the honey off the lid and it is probably the best tasting honey i've ever had.

Nice kit
This is my second northernbrewer kit, and I loved the entire process. The beer is still fermenting, but i tried some wort and it's great (if I can, ill come back and edit this when its done).

I added twice the honey, from the same ames honey source (I used spring blossoms) and I think it will really make the beer fantastic.

Wonderful First Experience
This was my first home made brew. I ask for and received the kit for Christmas. I made the beer New Years day and today am finishing the last of it. I have since made 3 other beers too. I am really enjoying my new hobby and now feeling more comfortable with the whole process, I am about to step up to 5 gallon batches.

So how was the beer?
At first I wasn't sure. Seeing things first hand... dark and mirky liquid starts bubbling and making all sorts of slime... I was a bit nervous tasting it. But it was awesome.
Now, I will admit the first one we popped open had us worried. It had little to no bubbles. I was advised that I needed to get the temperature up (it was very cold here). I brought them upstairs where they got a more consistent temp. We tried a week later and the difference was pretty amazing. Bubbles in the glass, and fizzy bite on the tongue. It was a very nice experience, and sort of a cool entry into the troubleshooting process in beer.
The WH Honey Porter is a very interesting caramel, almost molasses flavor up front at which point a slow bitter starts to set in. Not too harsh or anything. There's also a note of... almost a sour vibe? Not sure how to describe it. But it's good, and I will be trying it again once I get the 5 gallon set up going.
My missing star is not about the beer, it's about the instructions. No where does the instructions state (nor the DVD) that we would want to top off the water, (or start with 1.5 G) to end up with a full gallon at fermentation. It was only after I had bottled and had only 7 bottles, that I learned in the forum that toping off was a thing. This is an introductory beer kit, that would have been helpful information.

I currently have the kit in my fermenter, and it is chugging right along through the blow off tube. I added a little extra sugar and anxious to see how it turns out. Great kit and a very helpful company.

White House Honey Porter
I feel this recipe has GREAT potential, but I feel as if I made a mistake in the brewing process. The head does not retain whatsoever (big, quick-dissipating bubbles) and contains a soapy aftertaste and aroma. I recently emailed info@northernbrewer.com for advice. I will appreciate any advice you can provide for this new homebrewer. I have your Pale Ale on deck, and I don't want to screw it up! Thanks!
