    "It would be the same as adding .5 gallons of water and .45 pounds of dry malt. It will only
    raise the gra...

    Ben - i saw an old post where you came up with a gravity reading of 40 (1.04) for pure
    watermelon's where i'm confused: that's 40 points per pound per gallon, right?so
    if I use 4 cups, wh...

    apologies if this question has already been answered in this thread, but do we know what the
    impact of adding 4 cups of watermelon juice in a 5 gallon batch is on our specific

    I brewed with maple sap last year (just sparged partially with sap, actually) just for novelty
    - I didn't taste any affect at all, but I didn't mash with it.I think the answer you're going
    to get is t...
