Default POM Wonder Pomogrante wheat?

Ext weekend I will be brewing a Pomogrante wheat beer, Costco had a special on a gallon of the stuff and I used to really like the one that Fort Collins brewery put out prior to the change in master brewer.. Anyways, back on track.. I was considering splitting it up with half of it in the boil and half of it added 1 week into fermentation. I was plan ing to just do an extract beer with 6 lbs of wheat malt extract and 2 oz of Hallertau hops split evenly between bittering and aroma additions..

Pom is some strong juice.

Are you using anything to sweeten it a bit?

I wouldn't put any in the boil. Use it in the fermenter only.

Don't boil juice, you'll lose all the aromatics imo. I'd camden tab it and add half on day 0 in fermentor and half after krausen just peaks.

Just make sure it does not contain potassium sorbate as that will hinder yeast performance during fermentation to a significant degree.

Hmm, probably should have picked up some camden tablets when I was just at the home brew shop. I think that POM flash pasteurizes their juice so I shouldn't have to worry about any wild yeast though.
