    I have been using an "igloo ice cube" cooler with a frozen 16 oz water bottle. After high krausen I have to freeze only about 3/4 of a bottle or it gets too cool (as in the low 60's). It seems to work very well though without having to spend much money.

    Just started a batch of watermelon wheat last week. The name sounded interesting to me so I thought I'd give it a try. For those who have brewed this before, how did you like it? Any advice on the process? What's a good amount of watermelon juice to use? Getting ready to add the juice Sunday. - Thanx -

    If I were to try a watermelon beer, I would consider experimenting with this. https://www.olivenation.com/watermelon-extract.html

    http://howtobrew.com/book/section-1/priming-and-bottling/what-sugar-should-i-prime-with See last sentence on page: Simple sugars don't have this cosmetic problem and the small amount used for priming will not affect the flavor of the beer.

    So it looks like this is a go. To summarize, @scouterbill will be at Jungle Jims on Friday. On Saturday morning, he and I will met at Braxton Brewery in Northern Kentucky, on his way back home and my way up. I will meet up with @D Kristof at the event. I will PM the two of you my cell phone number so that we can stay in contact.

    Make sure your watermelon isn't part of the recall - https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2018/06/09/cdc-precut-melon-recall-salmonella-five-midwestern-states/687631002/ My advice - follow the recipe.

    Recipe calls for 2 cups. Watermelon is a subtle flavor, so make sure the melon you add the juice from is very sweet. https://www.mrbeer.com/watermelon-wheat

    It does seem to be therapeutic to watch, but LBK is on a 5' high shelf. Too tired, old & lazy to stand in basement for hours holding flashlight. Never split seasoned hickory wood before, have to do a little at a time, it's like trying to split steel.
