+1 for honey being sterile

Honey is shelf stable, unpasteuruzed. Honey found in Egyptian tombs from 3000 years ago was edible and safe.

Due in large part to its consistency/concentration, I believe it is stable, but raw honey is not sterile.

This is true, and my post about using it without heating didn't mean to imply it. Bacteria and what not can't thrive in it, but it ain't sterile. Then again, neither is anything most brewers do.

But it is, for example, the largest reservoir of botulinum in our food sources. That's not to scare anyone though... our stomachs deal with it just fine, just like it does when we eat the stuff. Babies, on the other hand, are at risk. So don't give your honey beer to a baby.

Default White House Ales?

Has anyone tried brewing the ones released from the white house yet?

Mine is getting bottled today...when I racked it to secondary it was delicious and still had honey notes in it, despite me boiling the honey as per the recipe (and using cheap SAMs club clover honey)... Tasting in about 2 weeks.

I drank my sample. I'd like to say I tasted the honey, but I know it's in there, so...

I can say it tasted sweet in a way that was more than just from malt.

I don't. But I work from home, often on the laptop in the living room, and SWMBO happened to have it on.

Honest!
