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!

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.
A little more bitter than expected but finish has a nice complexity to it. I was worried it would be a sweet but thankfully I was wrong. The sweetness is very very subtle. I really enjoyed this one and everyone I've shared it with went out of their way to tell me they loved it. I would give it 5 stars if it was slightly less bitter (I did boil the hops longer than what was called for so it could be my fault). Would definitely brew again.
Easy to make and great tasting honey all.
Still fermenting. So far so good. Im anticipating a wonderful turnout. Never had any issues with NB products. All have been amazing
Love this beer! Moderate complexity to brew, great final product!
