Maybe I should re-evaluate my volumes. I was planning on using 0.5 gallons of POM mixed with 2.5 gallons of American Wheat in the secondary. You used a much lower ratio and say you've achieved positive results. The last thing I want is an overwhelming pomegranate beer. Maybe I should be thinking about 1 quart in the 2.5 gallon secondary......So far, I've had the batch in secondary for 5 days now. it started to ferment again and is about done i think. I gave it a quick sample and was very very pleased! It started off sweet with a semi-strong Pomegranate flavor (but not overpowering) with a hint of blueberry to it. You can taste the hops ever so lightly at the back of the tounge. You can also get some of the peach hints from the us-05 yeast I used. So all in all, I'm happy about my results from the juice.
I used 0.75 quarts of pomegranate juice in 2.5 gallons of beer. I don't believe the juice altered the color of the beer at all. When I had both the pomegranate version and the apricot version poured at the same time, I was not able to differentiate between them. You could absolutely set them apart by their smell but not color.What color did you get out of the pomegranates? I'm looking for something that will give it a pinkish hue.
