This is the second of two White House recipes that we’ve made, this time we converted it from an extract brew to an all-grain brew.

Basically, we just took the 6.6 lbs of LME and substituted it with 10 lbs of Maris Otter Pale Malt. This will give us a far better and more accurate flavor, as Maris Otter is intended to be used to create English ales, such as a porter. Too bad we don’t have access to the White House honey, some local Illinois honey will just have to do.
