Definitely need to know how that works instead of the priming sugar!

I can't stand that fake watermelon flavor..that is why I love this recipe so much since you use actual watermelon juice instead of the fake stuff. Adding watermelon jolly ranchers seems to defeat the purpose of using fresh watermelon juice IMO. Different strokes though.

good luck

Great recipe....did this last year and the keg disappeared in one party. One critique was that there was some tartness.

Question: I followed the latest recipe when I brewed it last year, using 6 cups of watermelon juice in the secondary. Of course, there was some additional fermentation when the juice was in the secondary, which I think led to some tartness in the final product. In order to get some of the sweetness back this year, could I add a few campden tablets to the secondary to kill off the yeast and retain the watermelon sweetness?

Has anyone tried this and what was your result?

Sounds like it'll work in theory. I'd add 3 cups, let them ferment then 3 more cups and the campden tablet.

Thanks by the way - this beer tastes amazing. My mother is anti beer drinker and I stopped to see my parents on Saturday and drop off my kids. I cracked a beer at 10 am (so my father could taste) and after getting yelled at for drinking beer,especially at 10 am my mother polished off half a beer and said "wow Todd that's really good...refreshing and different"

Cheers and thanks!!!
