I'm going to brew an all-grain version of this tomorrow. I'm assuming the Fuggles is all for aroma. This should make it a slightly malty instead of on the rather hoppy side.

I had a recipe worked out I was going to brew called Barocktoberfest, but this will be a great replacement instead.

I've got an ESB recipe that I've done both with and without gypsum. In my experience the gypsum brought out the hop flavor to the front in a aggressive, almost bite-on-the-tongue kind of way. I prefer the more mellow, without gypsum version. That being said, my water is nothing like DC's.

Exactly. Who cares at this point. Its cool that home brewing was noticed on a national level or bigger. If someone takes that recipe(s) and makes an AG or makes the original better then the white house did then awesome. That's what home brewing is all about.

Now I can just see it turning into a "fad" or "cool thing" because the president did it, and they brew it at the white house. I can also see all my relatives finding out that I am new to brewing and saying something like "Oh, did you see that Obama is brewing beer in the white house?". As if I am doing it only because of this.

Regardless of this, I do think its great that ts getting publicity and I do think its cool that they are brewing. The recipes look pretty good and Im sure the beer will be great.

Why add the honey at the beginning of the boil for the porter? The recipe doesn't look half bad, I'll probably be giving it a go here sometime in the near future.

I would assume for security reasons they have a water filter system to end all water filtration systems.

And probably a super secure incoming water source.

Adding raw honey to cold wort could result in an infection.

But i agree that adding it that early doesn't make sense if you want to taste the honey.

Add it at 5 minutes from flameout if you want the flavor.

But it's possible, and i don't see a lot of recipes where honey is added to cooled wort. Mostly during the boil, at flameout, or in secondary.

No baddies can thrive in sugar at that concentration but some stuff can survive dormant in it. And most of that stuff can't survive in wort owing to the ph and hops.
