Yeah, i think im going to have to try this a few times for her. she actually got the beer ahead of time, her thought process was basically "i like pom" + "i like alaskan amber", so that is what i have to work with, lol. i'll try a wheat next for sure.
Thanks for mentioned the "dont add juice to boil" i would have made that mistake. i normally do a secondary so that wont be a problem.
one last concern i have is adding so much juice that the beer ends up with a high alcohol content, she favors a lower level, around 4.5-6%. This beer should end up being about a 5% how much sugar would add about 1% alcohol? im having a hard time finding an answer to this part.
