I assume when your gravity readings are at 1.019 three days in a row. Or something very close to it??

I've been keeping track of my gravity readings since I transferred it to the secondary carboy and added the watermelon juice. Everyday for the past 4 days it has been reading a 6 on my refractometer and I don't feel like it is going to go down any more. I plan on bottling on Sunday and want to know if its ok to bottle with a gravity around 1.020-24?

omg... I just popped open my test bottle and took a sip. O_O ... This beer is amazing. Cheers to you, Dubbel Dach! Thanks for the great recipe! I'm a huge fan of 21A's Hell or High, but this is a step beyond that beer. I used 8 cups of watermelon juice only, no extract. I tasted a homebrewed watermelon wheat ale with extract in it the other week at a beer fest and couldn't take more than 2 sips. This beer tastes so fresh and clean... I love it!!!

if the beer is at 80F, and started bubbling again as soon as i added the watermelon juice...do you think 24 hours is long enough before bottling? i'm not taking FG readings

I have my babies bottled and ready to go. I'm getting antsy and was wondering if 2 days if enough before I can drink it? Any thoughts on it.. It's been bottled since sunday the 30th.

Do you mean you are bottle carbonating and they were bottled 2 days ago? Well, you can drink them anytime, but if you want them to be carbonated - waait 3 weeks at 70F.

Just noticed this has 2 weeks in secondary, is this so the beer can clear up after the watermelon sugars are fermented? Also how big of a difference will temp make, my beer sits around 74 degrees in the closet I use.
