Pics of my 4th of July brew... I have made my Watermelon Wheat as an extract/specialty batch, as a partial mash, and now on the day of our liberation from tyranny - as an all-grain batch!!! I am free from the shackles and limitations of stale extract. We the people want fresh, light colored, authentic beer!!!
I am also going to use real watermelon juice to flavor this beaut, as per recommendations from this board. The first two oppressive brews used William's Watermelon Extract (NTTAWWT actually, but I'm on my freedom rant!)
My first two labels have featured a vector lady in a watermelon bikini, but this label will be a reproduction of that with a real lady. Again - brewing freedom!!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! FREE AT LAST!!!!!
PS: 5 lbs pilsner malt, 4 lbs wheat malt (153* for 60 mins).... .5 oz Mt. Hood at 60 mins... 1 lb. wildflower honey at flameout.... WLP320 - American Hefe.... Will add a few cups of watermelon juice to 2ndary.
