Sub water with watermelon juice entirely, and even then, you'll probably need some back-sweetening with boiled off watermelon juice (So it has a higher concentration). And it might taste like butt too.

Bottled 7 gallons of Mother of Dragons mead. Blood red and spicy. Brewed the end of June beginning of July. Used dragon fruit, horn melon, raspberries, jalapeños, oak chips, and red pepper flakes. Turned out sweet, spicy, and full bodied.

So with the season opener only a few days away, I thought there would be more activity on this thread. .. .

I drank all mine =[. Well my co-workers and I. I'll have to come up with a brew for this season. I think I'll do braggot style barley-wine.


-Recipe Formulated-
Name: Dragon Whip Barleywine-Braggot > When you whip the dragon, you get the flames (a sneaky high ABV) <
1 Gallon batch

Fermentables
2 LBs Honey (snowberry)
2 Lbs Pilsner
1 LB Crystal 60

Hops
.5 oz Galaxy 75 Minutes
.5oz Galaxy 7 Minutes

Yeast - WYeast 4347 Eu De Vie
Estimated SG per Brewtoad - 1.149
Estimated FG per Brewtoad - 1.012
18% ABV

Process notes: I'll need to not add the full load of honey straight away to prevent a stuck ferment. I'll mash the grains and boil the hops in that wort, skipping the honey to not cook off aromas. I'll add 1 lb of honey to the original must which calculators estimate the starting gravity being 1.107 (much more manageable for yeast).

SNA + Step Feeding:
First 2/3 of nutrients will be loaded up front. I'll aerate daily to to the 1/3 sugar break. Next when the gravity hits ~1.040 I'll add the last pound of honey as well as the last dose of nutrients and ferment it out.
