I brewed a watermelon wheat and it was delicious!
5 gallon batch
6lbs Bavarian Wheat DME
1oz Hallatauer at 60 min
1oz Hallertauer at 5 min
US-05 rehydrated
After 7 days in primary I put in 9lbs of yellow watermelon yes YELLOW (that had been frozen and thawed) right on top in primary bucket. Waited 7 more days and removed watermelon then put in secondary for 2 weeks. At kegging I put in 1/2 an ounce of watermelon flavoring because I couldn't really taste the melon. Wow! after it was carbed the watermelon flavor was so good. The more it sat the better it got. My brew club loved it! Going to brew it again next weekend. Make sure you wash the outside of the melons with soap and water and sanitize melons, freezer bags, scoop, knife and counter

Three questions:

1. Can I use 2 cans of Thomas Cooper's wheat extract? It's the only one I can get.

2. The yeast, I'm using SafBrew WB-06, do I just rehydrate then pitch? Or can I just sprinkle on top?

3. Can I leave out the Aromatic malt?

Yes that extract is just fine. You can rehydrate or sprinkle it on top lots of people do it both ways. I see no reason why you couldn't leave the aromatic out of it at all. It will still come out great!

Wow, what an awesome brew. Just tapped my keg and it was nothing but awesomeness... Added 4.5 cups of fresh squeezed watermelon juice to secondary and it was just perfect. Nice wheat flavor up front with a soft watermelon taste on the back end...

I'm glad you like it! I'm opening a brew pub in a few months and it will be on tap every year when watermelons are in season.

It really doesn't take any longer than any beer that you would dry hop. Figure 3 weeks fermentation and then bottle conditioning.

Mine has been in the primary 12 days now and I won't be able to secondary until 4 days from now. Wonder how this will affect the beer?
