Brewing his way to become our First President

Our Coutry needed a leader! Our country needed a man who could inebriate his constituents!

We needed a Home Brewer!

George Washington's brewing recipe

"To Make Small Beer"
Take a large Siffer [Sifter] full of Bran Hops to your Taste. Boil these 3 hours then strain out 30 Gall[ons] into a cooler put in 3 Gall[ons] Molasses while the Beer is Scalding hot or rather draw the Melasses (sic) into the cooler & St[r]ain the Beer on it while boiling Hot. let this stand till it is little more than Blood warm then put in a quart of Yea[s]t if the Weather is very Cold cover it over with a Blank[et] & let it Work in the Cooler 24 hours then put it into the Cask—leave the bung open till it is almost don[e] Working—Bottle it that day Week it was Brewed."

All he had to do was make enough beer to get the electoral college drunk and wallah the Presidency was his.
