My most recent brew is a Special Amber Ale Watermelon Red, which should be theoretically ready to drink by the 4th of July weekend. I'm looking forward to this one—it should have a nice rich flavor and a moderate alcohol content (likely to be about 5.2% ABV). I added about a pound and a half of fresh strawberries mainly to try to give it a slight reddish tint, since I doubt such a small quantity will affect the flavor or aroma much (but who knows!). OG = 1.055.
