It's getting close! 100? ;-)

Anyway, about watermelon brew that someone asked about...

A guy in our local brewclub made one. I'm not sure about the exact
details but he basically made a very pale ale and added a 20 lb (I think I
remember that right) water melon to the secondary. He used rind and all.
The beer is great! He thinks that the next time around he will not use the
rind as he thinks it gives a slightly bitter flavor, and more melon. He used
very little by way of hops if any. If I see him soon I'll ask for the recipe.
This same fellow likes to experiment with odd brews. HE has a friend who
works in a candy factory who get industrial strength flavorings. A couple of
these are oil based but the others are not. They work well in flavoring
brews.
