So, Obama isn't really a homebrewer. He just had the kitchen make him some beer.

Divide that number by 37 and you get 9.43 lbs of 2 row. Use that along with the other specialty grains as they appear in the recipe. For the other recipe you'll need to calculate the DME with the multiplier 44 instead of 37. I'm just going in exactly the reverse from the formulas given on that site. EDIT: Did the math really quick, the second recipe would use 11.13 lbs of two row with an efficiency of 70%.
Nice! You da man.

Sorry, he is not a homebrewer. His cook made beer for him;similar to 17th century England where the nobility and wealthy had their servants brew beer for their estates.

Perhaps if the themes weren't always "Obama beer" but rather presidential ale it'd be better received. Personally I think it's great that any president is helping out homebrew by doing it at the Whitehouse. Of course the subject has been done to death.

As far as the recipe goes good luck getting their honey. Anyone know what kind of flowering plants are nearby or has tasted the honey?

This.

I'm happy that the hobby is getting press, but it sickens me to see more claims about "Obama's beer". He financed it and drank it. From everything that's been released, he has 0 involvement in the process.

I'm thinking no way that honey is available to the general public. Cherry blossoms? LoL. And I know there's a vegetable garden.
