Hi beer masters. I would really like some help with this one. With all the buzz about White House beer, I got interested in the possibility of making beer according some "original" recipes. Specifically, the famous "George Washington" recipe. Turns out it is available online here

and in places on the net.

But if you take a look at the ingredients and method, it doesn't seem so easy to convert it to current techniques.

So I made an effort to do this in BeerSmith. But it doesn't look like this recipe would turn out too well.

So here's my request to this beer-loving community. Can anyone convert the original Washington recipe for "Small Beer" to a recipe that could be made these days? What does "a large Sifter full of Bran Hops" MEAN? What yeast would be best? The molasses, I get.

If we could figure out this recipe in the next week or so, a batch could be ready to taste by President's Day!

Many thanks!
