This popular watermelon beer has a BrewChatter twist! It's a bit more complicated, but way more fun! You can make either a 10 gallon batch of a low alcohol beer, or a 5 gallon batch of an imperial version!
This crisp, dry wheat style beer has a nice, slightly tropical hop aroma that mixes well with the fresh watermelon flavor. We recommend a clean, dry fermenting American ale yeast to dry it out and push forward the specialty malts and pop the hops.

Here’s another fun recipe from back in the day!  Originally, I brewed this up on our old 1/2 Barrel system using a light, easy drinking American Wheat as a base.  I left the volume a  little light, knowing that I had almost 4 gallons of fresh, pureed watermelon heading into the fermenter a few days in.  Turns out if you add a ton of fruit juice and blender pulp into active, primary fermentation, things explode.  Who would’ve thought?!  After this batch, which came out insanely delicious with just the right hint of watermelon without being overbearing, I spent plenty of time repainting the ceiling in my spare bathroom…
