Product details

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!

White House Honey Ale

As always, kit arrived right on time and in good shape. (Even though the shipper is a little hard on the exterior packaging.) The timeliness is appreciated. This was batch number 69. It basically gets 5 stars. The only negative I would note is that the small grain sack provided is too small for the volume of grain provided in this particular kit. Grains would have had to have been packed in the sack to fit / close off, which would have hindered the steep flow in the sack. Fortunately I had a spare small muslin sack in my supplies and used it. Otherwise the batch went very well. Did use yeast nutrient and O2 wand. Airlock was going to town the next morning. Racked and bottled without issue.
Because of the amount of grain I did add a tsp of Irish moss however at racking time it was clear that I didn't need it after all. It just made for really soft trub. Batch is currently conditioning. It looked good, smelled good, and I look forward to enjoying it once ready. Jeff A.

White house honey brown

Best honey brown I've ever had. The only thing that I do different with the recipe is I double the honey. Awesome beer.

Nice Beer

This beer tastes good. My secondary fermenter is tied up with a heavy stout, so I bottled this batch after 3 weeks in the primary. It tasted good after a couple weeks of bottle conditioning, but it tastes better now after a month. The instructions call for 4 weeks in the fermenters. If you can, you should give this brew that long.
