Man all I have to say is WOOT!
I did a very mildly altered version of your V5 and I am amazed at how good it is. I tried a bottle (Im impatient) only 1.5 weeks after botteling and it still blew my socks off. Mine did not end up as "redish" as yours did (intentional on my part) but it was def pinkish in the 2ndary. Wife commented on it and I was worried about it being to watermelony. She tried some of it as well and was VERY happy with it. She thought it was similar in taste to 21st Amendments brew, but to me mine tastes 10x more natural watermelony if that makes any sense. The 21st amendment beer is good, but to me its just a hint of watermelon at the end. Mine tastes like a mild to moderate watermelon beer, not just an aftertaste. I will be entering this into a local homebrew competition. It will be my 1st competition, so here is hoping I pick a good bottle to give them lol!
Thanks for such an amazing recipe though. I plan on making another batch of it here soon before the watermelons totally disappear!
