i'm brewing this tonight.

in the video on the white house website, it seems like i remembered them putting a quart of honey in there, which according to the quart i picked up at the farmers market, is 2.25 lbs.  plugging that into beersmith, i'm coming out with an abv of 8.5%.....  so, looks like i'll be adding the pound that came with the kit, which drops the abv down to 6.5%.


hopefully this will be ready to celebrate with the night of the election.

When I watched the video it looked like a pint jar to me so 1 lb. would be about the right amount.

Yeah but pint = pound is only valid for water, honey is significantly more dense, no?

I also ordered the kit. Figure I'll swap out the probably-crap honey with the stuff produced by carl's girls' cousins about half a mile away.

You probably right on the weight difference. You are definitely right on the density difference.

I was going with the the statement that his quart of honey weighed 2.25lbs.  No other research or knowledge.  8^)

honey has a SG of around 1.300 - 1.500 depending on the bees and such. so  pint of honey at 39* would weight between 1.3 and 1.5 lbs.

(A pints a pound only for water at 39*f)

i guess i should taste what is in the kit and what i have and worst case scenario, guesstimate how much of the local stuff to add at the end.

make sure the stuff in the kit didn't come from outside the US. There have been a few cases recently of lead in honey from china and various honey laudering operations moving honey from china around the world so it could be imported into countries that won't accept chinese honey for that very reason.

"Honey laundering"??  That sounds almost comical.  I had to read that twice to make sure I saw it correctly.
