So, this was ready to serve at Thanksgiving.

The bottle conditioned growlers were fully carbed and poured a pink color wth bright white head.

The taste is dry and tart.

Maybe some crystal malt would have helped.

Still people liked it, and it looks festive.

Update: The white head is turning pink. The half of the batch that was put in growlers and primed with sugar have aged more and are ready. The keg (stored at 35F at 12psi) is slowly coming around.

My sister is going to serve a couple growlers at a Christmas party tomorrow night. I think it's a good effort and good enough to share.

Sorry to revive an old thread, eh.

But would you mind saying, what was the batch size?

I am just trying to figure out the beer vs pomegranate juice ratio.

You said you added 6 litres total to... how many? With a full 13gal kettle prior to boil that would be 12gal final batch size?

I just brewed an American Wheat ale last month (15 gallons worth) and added some POM juice straight to the secondary fermenter for 5 gallons of it for 2 weeks. I used 16 oz. - the smaller bottle - and to me the taste is definitely present but not as full as I would like it to be. If I had to do it again, to make it a "true" pomegranate wheat I would double up and add 32 oz. to the secondary.

It's a unique and refreshing taste in a beer, especially if you're as big a fan of pomegranates as myself and my fiancee are. We go through at least three per week usually.

Sorry to revive the old thread. I just saw your question!

1 gallon of homemade pomegranate juice (4 liters) into 10 gallons of wheat beer. I looked back at the photo of the fermenters in the bath tub to be sure. They are about: 3.5 gallons, 2.75 gallons, 3.75 gallons Also, looking back at other brew logs that kettle (I don't use anymore) would yield just about 10 gallons into the fermenter max.

I was happy with that amount of pomegranate. The hopping was very low. If I did it again I might add a pound (or 2) of crystal malt. It was good but fairly tart.

Also, it's worth noting that I did not need campden tablets... the juice was frozen for a couple years before my sister gave it to me. There were no critters living in it. (I did not experience any infection or gushing bottles.)
