it wont be ready for this christmas but if you can find a watermelon you need to squeeze the meat of the melon to get the juice out of it.

This sounds interesting, I may try it sometime!

I'm currently waiting on a brew to finish primary (a freak wheat where i put in way too much malt, 9lbs not including the 1lb honey actually with no Irish moss). Once that is finished this will be a strong candidate for what comes next!

Only thing is I am only as far as extract and have not steeped grains before, I'm curious to do so though!

I found a watermelon extract from a candy company and added it to the keg. Aroma is awesome but the flavor is lacking. Try giving 21st Amendment a call and ask what they use.

steeping grains is very easy. get all of the grains crushed and put them into a muslin bag. put them into 2 or 3 gallons of water (depending on how big of pot you have) get the heat up to 155 deg and hold for 30 min to 1 hour. remove the grains and rinse them with 1 gallon of 170 deg water and your back to regular extract brewing after that.

My current brew is still going (it's over 2 weeks now!) but I should be coming up to racking into secondary over strawberries in one more week.

I may tweak it a bit and I'll let you know what I do. I'm also thinking about using WLP 320 and seeing how that turns out. Wyeast 3944 seems like it may still be tart unless I'm missing something.

I'm using WB-06 currently and I'm surprised it's still surviving, last I checked gravity was around 1.03, down from 1.07-1.08).

Does anyone have any feedback on the other yeast alternatives? I am going to try this out and wanted to see what yeast I should go with...

I am interested in making a Watermelon beer. Has anyone tried making a Watermelon Pale ale? I see that everyone is talking about a Watermelon Wheat. I had a Watermelon Ale in the past and it was good. I am wondering which would be better
