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.
