Thx. I'm about to keg a wheat I brewed and add about 5 cups of watermelon. Fresh or from Kroger if I can find it. Has anyone here thought of adding some sorbate???? It's used in winemaking to keep fermentation from starting back up if back sweetening a wine.

It would maybe preserve some of the sugars from the watermelon.

Yes I had thought about doing it but didn't want my beer to be a sweet fruity mess. I have never had any luck with it stopping fermentations either. But what ever works for you man.

Ben -
I brewed up a 5 gallon batch of this using my own extract variation: 3.3lbs wheat LME, 2lbs light DME, 1oz Hallertau for 60 minutes... I let it ferment for a week, then added 5 cups of of squeezed and strained watermelon juice and gave it two more weeks before bottling.

I think next time I'd actually do more watermelon - the flavor is subtle enough that most people have told me "I'm not sure I'd be able to figure out that it was watermelon if you hadn't told me."

thanks for the idea, thread, and methodology!
-KD

That's odd most of the time 5 cups of juice is more than enough. Glad you like it though.
