Just racked this one to the secondary with the melon. Can't wait to try it. Should be timed perfectly for the fourth of July, which was the goal.

I did a watermelon wheat 'ben the brewman' style last year. It was great, see my replys in this thread.

I decided to go a differnet route this year because I would have to wait till about now to get a decent watermelon. Instead, I followed the suggestion in this thread here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f75/watermelon-ale-167129/
and my version (see thread) has been bottled for a week now. It is pretty good so far! Also, this one appears to be able to pour with a head on it, something the natural Watermelon version wouldn't. Check it out!

Was gonna give this a try. I screwed up when ordering the yeast. I have the S05 yeast. Will this work?

Brewed this yesterday morning - happily bubbling away in the primary now. Followed the original recipe, but pitched Wyeast 3068. I ordered the watermelon jolly ranchers to use for priming - will report back when it's ready for tasting in mid-August.

The 3068 gives it a good flavor that goes pretty good with the watermelon. Be careful with the jolly ranchers it takes 1 to prime a 22oz bottle.

I was gonna use the s05 yeast too, just because that is what I have on hand. Any tips to insure that this does not come out too tangy?

Thanks - I am going to bulk-melt enough jolly ranchers in water to mix with the entire batch. If the math is right, 26 or 27 jolly ranchers should be enough for the 5 gallons. Has anyone tried this bulk method, or has it only been 1 per 22oz bottle?
