It's just like how people buy things because of the name regardless of the quality. I give two ****'s that the white house is getting into beer to be perfectly honest, nothing can make me buy that kit......
The recipe is actually quite tasty. I only have a few batches under my belt and I can say this is by far the best beer I've made. Oh, I made the porter recipe.

Keep the politics out. Take it to the debate forum.

That's exactly what I did. I printed out the recipe and picked up the ingredients at my LHBS. I thought it would be fun to brew the same recipe that's brewed in the White House kitchen, especially since so many other people were brewing it at the same time.

Not everyone thinks that's worth doing. That's OK. We're not all going to agree on everything, and we don't all like the same things. I don't like barleywines or most IPAs, and have zero interest in brewing them. But I don't see much point in trying to pick fights with people who do like them.

They will regurgitate the nectar into a cell that contains regurgitated nectar from those same flowers. The beekeepers, when harvesting the honey, will pretty much blend everything they take. If the hive is in the middle of a white clover field, or a gigantic orange grove, you can be almost certain that it is 100% of that flower. The beekeepers that rent out their hives do that for a reason. Orange, Almond and Clover honeys are consistently bringing the highest prices.

Can you post your recipe? There are probably other brewers who would like a 1 gallon version.

I modified the white house honey ale, here is my all grain recipe. It turned out pretty good I must say!

5g batch
----------------------------------
American Pale Ale 2 Row : 8.8lb
Munich malt : 1.1lb
Crystal 20L : .77 lb
Biscuit malt : .484

Fuggles (45min) : 1.75 oz
Spalt (5min) : 1.75 oz
Sorachi Ace (dry hop) : 1.5 oz

Yeast : Safale Us-04

1.1 kg of honey

--------------------------

I switched the hops from the original recipe since my home brew shop didn't have everything. U must say, the Sorachi Ace does a fantastic job
