Yes We Can: White House releases homebrew recipes

Our petition was successful! Earlier this morning the White House released the recipes to their White House Honey Ale and White House Honey Porter.


I’ve gone ahead and added created the recipes in BeerSmith and let me tell you, the president & co like to get *messed up*. If you follow the recipe to a T you end up with something like a ~11.7% ABV beer. In reality (and after watching the Inside the Whitehouse video), I think they’ve omitted a few steps. I’ve tried to correct what I believe they left out (namely water and flavor hop additions), to bring the recipes more in line to typical beer recipes.

Without further ado, here are the recipes in BeerSmith and generic BeerXML formats.
