Can not wait to try it. Thanks for the thread!
Well it's been just over a month since I brewed this. I decided to take a sample of it tonight to see how it's carbing. It's pretty good but I think it needs a little more time in the keg. There is a lovely watermelon aroma but I was hoping for a little more flavor. I'm considering adding another ounce of extract. Any thoughts on this? Maybe I could even add a couple more cups of fresh watermelon juice.
I'm no beer judge but it reminds me of Hoegaarden, which I'm personally a big fan of. Similar color and mouthfeel. It looks much darker in the picture than it actually is. It tastes very 'clean' but I can't really describe what I'm trying to say. Clean is the best word I can think of to describe it. Maybe crisp is a better way to put it.
I did learn one very valuable lesson through this beer. I will never try to carb a keg using any of the burst carb methods again. This has been on 16PSI for just one week and it's already so much better than any of my other kegs that I felt like I was constantly fighting with while rushing the carb.
I'm very happy that I came across this thread. Thanks to all who contributed
