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?
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.)
