Damn.... Too late to help Draygon. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f75/wate...-wheat-139086/

I would never add any fruit before secondary. And would definitely never boil the flavors away.

Just worried that by adding so much that you're just adding a lot of water, that's all.

I took that into consideration and boiled off enough so that with the addition of the puree I came up to the 5 gal level exactly.

Both batches are bubbling along nicely!

Let's us know how it is in a month or so...
We aren't bashing you just saying when you boils fruit it has to extract some flavor. So when you are saying you didn't add too much water did you strain it?

Racked this to secondary a day ago, looked lime a normal hefe, had a subtle watermelon flavor to it as an after taste. It was good. I racked it on top of another half of a watermelon pureed. ABV before the new addition was 5.6%, I am guessing that it will end roughly at 5.8% with a red tint to it.
