I actually ended up doing two batches, just some small changes in them, one with a little 60degree and a little less honey. For the watermelon juice, I tried to sani a spoon and funnel and filter, but it was too difficult to make sure they juice only touched sani'd things, so I heated about 175 for 10 minutes. All the red precipitated out of the juice. I tasted the clearer part and all the flavor seemed to be in there, so I tried to leave as much of the red gunk in the pot as possible and they both seemed to turn out ok. Just my experience for what its worth.

So I just tapped this beer tonight - holy crap, this beer is amazing! Nice and crisp on the front end, and a great taste of watermelon towards the end. Unfortunately, I'm bringing this beer to a party tomorrow, I'll definitely have to make this again!

I left mine for about 2 weeks, but a week should be sufficient.

brewed a batch of my own watermelon wheat and noticed that when i added it to the secondary the air lock got very active again so just for ****s and giggles i checked the specific gravity of the juice i got from it. here is what i found the specific gravity is 1.420 which on the hydrometer would read 1.042 thats quite a bit more sugar than i thought it had. im sure that this number changes from melon to melon but its a good place to start.
