Which yeast did you use? I am going to be brewing this around Wednesday when my sanitizer gets here. Any tips?

Well 3 weeks in bottles has passed (That makes 1.5 weeks Primary, 3 weeks secondary, and 3 weeks bottles total..)

That beer is pretty dang tart.. but very, very good.. I haven't given any away yet but I definitely will be, and ill let you know what people think. I will definitely warn them about the tart factor. Other than that its very tasty.. not something you chug but you definitely enjoy every last sip..

Good work. Ill let you know what my friends think.

this might be a good choice for yeast to wyeast 3944 Belgian Witbier. it might do away with the tartness.

Let me know how it turns out. This recipe looks interesting and I might try it some day. Watermelons are refreshing and not tarty.
