Recipe for White House honey ale

Makes about 4½ gallons

Besides the malt extracts and other unusual ingredients, all available at a homebrewer shop, you need a stock pot, hop bag, thermometer, two 6-gallon jugs,
a boiling bucket, a siphon (all part of a home-brewing kit), 2 cases of bottles
(48 12-ounce beer bottles) and something to cap them. Mark the outside of the jug at the 5-gallon point. You need to sterilize everything that touches the beer, including the bottles. Sterilize by rinsing with boiling water or use Easy Clean powder from a home-brewing shop.
