Ben - I ended up brewing your version of the Watermelon Wheat. Although I used 6lbs of LME and I used American Hefen yeast

Until they come up with a hop that smells like watermelon, I think a pale ale would make the watermelon useless. Also, too much bitter would kill the nice faint, sweet, watermelon aspect, IMHO.

I used WLP320. I checked the fermenatation process this morning. The airlock is still bubbling every 15-20 seconds (about a 1.5 weeks into it). Hopefully I will be able to rack to secondary this weekend. I do have a quick question, I took a sample of the beer and it tasted good but I noticed it was more white than a golden color. Did you expirence the same?

Just wanted to give an update on this brew. It is coming along nicely. It is a nice orange color. I racked it to secondary on Sunday. Any suggestions on how long I should leave it in the secondary?

add the watermelon juice and let the fermentation come to a end and you should be ready to bottle.

Just brewed this Ag today but my crush was horrid, alout half of my grain was completely uncrushed so I only got like 60% efficiency. I knew I shoulda asked my LHBS to recrush.

I also used Red Wheat this is going to have a nice red color. American Wheat yeast was used as well. My OG (with honey was 1.044) and I mashed at 153 so I have a feeling I might need some maltodextrin to help this beer out.

This was supposed to be a beer for a special occasion so I hope it turns out ok. It's will taste good, just might be a little watery.
