Hey guys, I'm really keen to try a watermelon wheat beer for my next brew and I'm currently doing partial mashes, but can't find a partial mash recipe. I have however found a couple of all grain recipes and a few extract recipes so have conjured up a partial mash recipe and am looking for some advice and opinions before I brew(and potentially brew swamp water + waste my time + money).
Here's what I've got so far;
Batch size: 5 gallons
Yeast: Safale WB06 Wheat
500g(17.63oz) white wheat malt
500g 2-row(17.63oz) pilsner malt
steep at 70c(158f) for 20 minutes, mash 1 hour.
boil mash liquor and add 1.5kg Briess(3.3 pound)Bavarian wheat extract
add 300g(10.58oz) light DME to fermenter, add wort. top to 5 gallons
Ferment 2 weeks, then rack onto 4 cups fresh watermelon juice for 1 week
My main questions are;
-I've never done a brew that involves fresh fruit juice, any tips or guidelines to follow?
-Is the Safale WB06 my best yeast option?
-What hops should I use, how much and what additions would you guys recommend?
-and overall, does this recipe look ok? any tweaks you'd suggest?
edit: just converted the recipe so hopefully more people can make sense of it and chime in
