Just added 8 cups (I want it to shine!!) to the base I did 2 weeks ago. My recipe was close, but not exact:

5# US-2-row
4# Wheat Malt
8oz Carapils
8oz Flaked Wheat
2oz Aromatic Malt

UK Northern Brewer [13IBUs]

American Hefe Yeast WLP320

8 Cups +/- fresh watermelon

Smells and looks awesome - cant wait to try it! Much thanks!!!

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!

FYI Don't enter this beer in any AHA competition judged by BJCP judges. I entered this exact recipe in a contest very recently and it received low marks and a lot of stupid commentary that made me scratch my head.

Drunk Judge #1

"extremely subtle watermelon flavor present"
"overall I was left wishing for more watermelon flavor, I was expecting a lot more from this beer"

Drunk Judge #2

"watermelon flavor is present, but not what I was expecting"
"increase your malt and body of beer to balance flavor"

Also, both geniuses mistook the watermelon aroma for sweet esters

I guess I must have mistakenly entered this into the "smirnoff ice" contest.......

Just pulled a sample from the keg. Not quite fully carbed but wow this is gonna be good in another week or two. 8 cups in mine, perfect watermelon aroma and flavor. Color isn't ead there though, just looks like a normal american wheat if not a tad darker.

Just checking in.... Tapped my latest batch on Sunday. Let's call it.... v 5.1. It's the recipe from v.5 except with NO watermelon extract. 8 cups of juice, no extract.

It's the best yet. Now I've locked it in!

PS.... 8 cups does actually equal a half gallon. So..... be careful when racking your beer on top of it in a 5 gallon carboy. Spilled a little until I realized what was up and salvaged the excess in a 1 gallon bucket. After secondary, I blended back and split in two 3g kegs.

Hey Ryan,
Congrats on getting this beer featured in the December issue of BYO in the Reader Profile column! Just got the issue in the mail and as it just so happens I happen to be sipping on one now. I squeezed one last batch in before the end of summer. Everyone I know that's tried it loves it.

Thanks man! I just finished some that I had set aside in a keg. Definitely a summer staple.
