I have a technical question about the steeping and boiling process.

I'm going to steep with 3 gallons of water and BIAB. When I'm done with the hour of steeping I'm going to strain the grains in a separate bucket with 4 gallons of room temp water and combine the two for the boil. Is the difference in temperatures (room temp water and 155 degree steeping water) going to affect it in a negative way?

I'm new to AG but I think you'd be better using warmer water or sparging. Plenty of helpful and more experienced people that will offer their ideas. Check or post in the techniques forum. Good luck bro

Try it without the Lorann first. 6-8 cups of juice will pleasantly surprise you. "Watermelons contribute no flavor, all water" is a MYTH... BUSTED!

Thinking of bottling after 10 in the secondary. Should be done.

HOLY S***! It's amazing with great waermelon flavor. Added a little Lorann and it's perfect. Definitely don't think the flavoring was necessary.

Question: How is the Watermelon taste on this brew over time? Does it start to fade after bottled for a while?

I honestly can't tell you. It never lasts more than a few weeks!
