It should settle out to a nice cloudy beer in a few weeks man. I would worry about it too much.

I liked the wb-06. It had a tart finish but it went well in the beer. American wheat is good and german ale would be fine too. Hope that helps.

It varies really. I like the 2.5 cups because its a nice light flavor but my wife likes it with 4 for a more fruity taste. Personal prefrence really.

I have been wanting to brew this beer and found this post. My local home brew store owner just got back from a trip in Seattle and went to a lot of breweries there. He went to one and they had an "experimental hop" that is not released and is supposed to have an amazing watermelon flavor. Somehow he was able to track down the grower and was able to get 11lbs. I know half of it is almost gone but I plan on going tomorrow to pick up as much as I can.

Now my question should I attempt this recipe with the experimental hop? AA on hop is 11 if i recall correctly.

And recommendations for yeast?

If your gonna try it with a 11% AA hop I would say add no bittering hops at all and hop burst it the last 20 minutes of the boil hard. I would have to plug the number in to get some ibu figures but thats what I would recomend. Try it with 1056 so you get a idea of the hop flavor and go from there.

What was the name of the hop?

The hop is HBC 342, I am going to give this a go soon. I will let you guys know how it turns out.

I also found it for sale at http://www.farmhousebrewingsupply.co...?idProduct=322

I have read of a few people using it, but mainly for IPA's. I will stray from the norm and try a HBC 342 Watermelon Wheat!

Ok, so I just brewed a 10g batch of this on Friday and got it into the fermenter. Today my AC broke and it's 85 inside my house right now. We are looking at 100+ weather all week and my AC won't be replaced till Friday at the earliest. I don't have anywhere to move this/take it, any ideas? Will it be ok?
