Just racked this one to the secondary with the melon. Can't wait to try it. Should be timed perfectly for the fourth of July, which was the goal.

Well I made 10 gallons this weekend. The first five will be watermelon and the other five will be passion fruit mango. Not sure of the exact ratios yet but ill get it soon.

I did a watermelon wheat 'ben the brewman' style last year. It was great, see my replys in this thread.

I decided to go a differnet route this year because I would have to wait till about now to get a decent watermelon. Instead, I followed the suggestion in this thread here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f75/watermelon-ale-167129/
and my version (see thread) has been bottled for a week now. It is pretty good so far! Also, this one appears to be able to pour with a head on it, something the natural Watermelon version wouldn't. Check it out!

Was gonna give this a try. I screwed up when ordering the yeast. I have the S05 yeast. Will this work?

Brewed this yesterday morning - happily bubbling away in the primary now. Followed the original recipe, but pitched Wyeast 3068. I ordered the watermelon jolly ranchers to use for priming - will report back when it's ready for tasting in mid-August.

The 3068 gives it a good flavor that goes pretty good with the watermelon. Be careful with the jolly ranchers it takes 1 to prime a 22oz bottle.

I was gonna use the s05 yeast too, just because that is what I have on hand. Any tips to insure that this does not come out too tangy?

Thanks - I am going to bulk-melt enough jolly ranchers in water to mix with the entire batch. If the math is right, 26 or 27 jolly ranchers should be enough for the 5 gallons. Has anyone tried this bulk method, or has it only been 1 per 22oz bottle?
