I have never worked with water mellon before I used five medium watermelon five pounds of strawberrys that I juiced one can of frozen apple concentrate one can pineapple concentrate one white one regular cans one concentrate and about three and a half pounds of sugar, it had a potential of making 10% ABV and has been fermenting well I also added yeast nutrient and yeast also used camden tablets and let it sit 24 hours before adding my yeast and nutrient.

Yes it was good very sweet before I added the yeast, I'm going to wait a few more days and bottle it so it stays sweet and pasteurize it on the stove.

It's fermenting away now about three bubbles every two seconds, I think ill check the ABV tonight if its 5% ill try a sample and see if I want to bottle now or wait and back sweeten.

It's done fermenting I put it into a secondary carboy l, I wish I boiled the watermelon more its not as strong of a taste as I would like, I'm going to try something that may be kind of strange figure I would test out the idea of flavoring with snowball flavor concentrate. If I make it again I would boil the four mellon so that it equals the liquid of one so maybe in the summer when they are very cheap ill try it again, and I think pineapple juice would work well to sweeten it.
