Details

Inspired by home brewers from across America, last year President Obama bought a home brewing kit for the kitchen. After the few first drafts they landed on some great recipes that came from a local brew shop and these were adapted to form the basis for a couple of regular brews, all brewed with Honey from the White House Hives.

Ever since word leaked that the Obama White House was producing its very own, home-brewed ales and porters beer enthusiasts have been trying to pry the secret recipes out. There was a Freedom of Information Act request. There was a question from the White House press corps. Eventually, Press Secretary Jay Carney tweeted that the President would oblige if an online petition hit its goal of 25,000 signatures.

Although the petition only achieved just over 12,000 signatures it would appear that the White House took pity and decided to release two of the regular recipes which we have converted and packed into complete recipe packs so you can brew these great beer for yourself at home.

The White House Honey Porter is flavoured with a blend of munich, chocolate, crystal and black malts matched with subtle flavour and aroma's from Hallertauer and Goldings hops.

Pack contains 2.5kg of Light Malt Extract, Hops, Crushed Grains and Yeast with full simple instructions. Requires 500g of honey which is not included. Kit requires boiling.

    Awesome Porter
    Review by Peteron 13/09/2015
    This is by far the best Porter I have ever had, including commercial Porters. I use cheap supermarket own brand runny honey as it really doesn't make any difference. You should really leave this beer 6 weeks to bottle condition to its best. I'll be brewing my next batch in October and storing it for Christmas time. Using Whitelabs WLP002 yeast really does make the ale outstanding. It's well worth the extra money.

    Review by Michaelon 03/11/2014
    This was very easy to brew with clear instructions.
    It's only been in the bottle for a couple of weeks so still a little "green" but I'm very impressed. Strong, slightly sweet with a sherry like finish and with a great creamy head and mouth-feel. This is going to be a cracker by Christmas (if I can keep my hands off it). It is very rich so next time I may use smaller 330ml bottles for at least some of the batch (for the ladies).
    In short, one to savor on a cold night in front of the fire.

    Review by aduptonon 28/03/2014
    My good lady wife bought this for me for Xmas and I used 500g Rowse Honey in it and then put it in my keg.

    I was eager to drink it and although it wasn't matured it was still an excellent ale.

    This was my first attempt at an extract brew and I found the results so much more pleasing that brewing a kit.

    As the brew matured and the contents in the keg got lower and lower the quality just kept on improving.

    The last pint in the bottom was outstanding and nearly had me in tears when I'd realised it was all gone.

    This is something I have not experienced with a kit. Usually with a kit the further you get to the end, the worse things tend to taste.

    I just can't recommended this enough and will definitely be brewing more in the months to come.

    As a beekeeper i was looking for a recipe to use the honey i harvest, this was perfect and porter has always been a favourite of mine. Brewed in late July and sampled over Christmas - will be doing this one again!!!

    Review by Andy Hon 31/12/2013
    By far the best extract kit I've done so far, lovely roasted notes, very smooth and a nice honey note if served at the right temperature. Well done to Greg and co for putting this together

    This is in the WOW factor.
    Review by Mechon 23/08/2013
    At present I have made two of these kits and of all the different kits I have made this is the best of the lot. I have made a few tweeks to get the ABV up to 8.5% and all of my guinea pigs are highly impressed.

    Wonderful.
    Review by Goliathon 19/02/2013
    I was very excited about this recipe and was not let down. In fact, my expectations were exceeded! Steeping the malts produced a great colour in the stock pot and everything boiling away gave a great aroma. I managed to wait 8-10 weeks before trying a bottle and my tasting partner and myself were blown away with it. It's now been in the bottle around 4 months and it's even better now, the flavours mellowing together really well. It's a good beer to give to someone visiting (if they're not driving) as after a few bottles of this, they're having a great time! Everyone who has tried my batch though it was great. My local landlord loved it too! Highly recommended. Get some on the go now!

    Great tasting ale
    Review by Matthewon 18/02/2013
    The finished product is fantastic. I used a brew belt to maintain the temp. The instructions were unclear as they mention 3 packs of hops, where there are only two in the ingredients list.

    A deep, fruity porter.
    Review by Williamon 07/01/2013
    I made this for Christmas, and my expectations were more than fully met.

    Mine came out at 6.8% abv since I brewed around 20 litres.

    Taste: Prunes, dried fruit, liquorice, Dandelion & Burdock, Port, smokey.

    Had a lovely aroma, and a slightly sweet taste with a bitter finish.

    Will do this again Xmas 2013.

    (PS, try adding a slosh of Port to your pint glass for a real treat).

    If you add a drop of port this brew sings for you!!
    Review by gardsyon 06/01/2013
    My brother and I both decided to make this kit for xmas 2012, I made 20 litres as I wanted a few more bottles for my money, brewing this kit filled my house with smells that i can only describe as alluring ! It was far easier boiling up in 2 large pans as the wort was so expansive.

    fermentation was perfect, og reading was 1.058, fg was 1.013, worked out abv was around 6.2%. I tried a bottle after 2 weeks and it was fresh, a little sweet but still hoppy enough.
    The one thing I will say about this beer is it varies day to day and changes quite a bit depending on what temperature you serve it at. It is a complex taste bursting with dandelion and burdock flavours, complimented with a rich fruit cake finish. The honey is there too, in the form of sweet sticky undertones.
    However.....
    If a dash of ruby port is added to your glass, then the whitehouse porter goes up several gears, this galvanises the rich fruity taste and floods into your pallet like a dark maroon river of velvety nectar!
    I think this brew is best served at room temp with a dash of ruby port, all in all a great great hombrewed winter beer.

    Really good results
    Review by Concreteon 09/12/2012
    This is my 2nd extract brew, having started with Way To Amarillo. That one was superb, but I do like a dark beer as well, and the election was fast approaching so I thought I'd try this.

    Again, the recipe was easy to follow, and just needed a big stockpot. Fermentation took a good few days - I bottled it after 11 days, then tried drinking it after about 2 weeks in the bottle. It's got a nice amount of chocolate/coffee flavour, and there's enough hop in there to stop it tasting sickly, which isn't always the case with porters. All in all it's a solid, well-rounded winter beer, with a nice, clear, dark appearance. I just used ordinary honey - if I were to make it again I'd perhaps try to use something more interesting, but there's still a slight honey taste present, so it did the job.

    Nice winter warmer
    Review by bulleton 24/10/2012
    Yet another excellent extract kit from brew uk.
    After being bottled for only 1 week tastes superb and at 7% adv is dagerously drinkable. Would recomend brewing for the festive season
