Northern Brewer White House Honey Ale Extract Beer Recipe Kit
Ale to the Chief! This original recipe, first customized and brewed by the White House kitchen staff, is now available by popular demand as a Northern Brewer kit. Built on a big foundation of malt with strong tones of biscuit and toffee, the Honey Ale plays up the fruity, caramel aspects of English malt and yeast. But much like the Founding Fathers would have spiced up traditional style ales with homegrown ingredients, a late addition of pure honey adds a revolutionary twist. Declare your independence from mediocre beers with this historic White House Homebrew!

I brewed this beer about 2 months ago. It spent 3 weeks in primary fermentation and 6 weeks in bottles. This beer turned out pretty delicious. My friends even thought it turned out pretty good.
it is a great beer I have made it a few times now and it turns out great every time.
It’s like a slightly sweet amber. I would definitely buy this again.
Easy beer to brew and tastes great! I will definitely brew it again!!
Ok, total beginners here. My buddy and I are brewing together and this was only our 2nd brew. Our first beer was the Block Party Ale that came out fine but was too weak for our liking. The White House Honey Ale was a damn good choice. We liked it because it added a little more complexity (2ndary fermenter) but not too much. Plus we liked the reviews and the fact that this beer had a bit higher abv. While we found the reviews useful I'm still not understanding why people don't leave their stats to help other beginners like ourselves. So here are ours:
1) Brew day - 2/10/2018. Orig Gravity was 1.062 (matched to recipe perfectly).
2) 2/2218: Moved to secondary fermenter (glass carboy). Gravity was 1.020.
3) 3/5/2018. Tested Gravity. Reading was 1.018.
4) We bottled on 3/9/2018. Final Gravity reading was still 1.018 (5.7 abv)
We kept the bottles at room temp that fluctuated anywhere from 65 - 69 degrees for two weeks. On day 10 during this period, we had 4 bottle bombs. We believe that when we mixed the priming sugar into the beer prior to bottling we didnt stir much at all and perhaps some bottles had more sugar then others. Perhaps there are other reasons but we couldnt figure it out.
This beer turned out awesome. Very flavorful. Shared with some friends that are craft brewers and the beer got great feedback. Very happy with this batch!
