I think this should be taken to its own thread, no reason to blow up TheBeerKid 's inbox. Not to step on any moderator's toes.

I would really recommend doing secondary if you haven't already added it at flameout. In my experience it doesn't make the flavor less prominent, it completely ruins the watermelon flavor. I tried...

Search it on google homie, it's a kit. A lot of Hefeweisens take relatively little time to make. There's also a recipe on the site for a panic button extract Hefeweisen that is apparently pretty good...

Bitter!

Just finished my first American wheat and bottled it. After tasting it, it came out much more bitter than anticipated. I added the zest of four blood oranges and the fruit of two, I'm afraid I...

Is Fermentation complete?

Oh god please don't pour it down the drain! If you're concerned with germs, the boil took care of that, if you're concerned with chemicals in the leather they were also probably boiled off and would...
