Notes

Watermelon Wheat recipe, original recipe by Mark Ranes (LazyBrewer). At the end of the boil add in the 5lbs of watermelon and let it be there while the wort cools. I like to use a hop or grain bag for it so it is easy to remove. After primary fermentation I check the flavor and if it needs more watermelon I will puree some more and add about 6 cups into the fermenter (or you can use a secondary either way works).

How did it turn out? I am growing watermelons between my hops to help keep the ground cool, and I thought of putting some in the Blond that I want to make next.
