While this was in the secondary today I decided to do something even more bizarre. I went to the grocery store and bought a watermelon, then came home and juiced it (with a masher over a colander). Since I had botched the transfer from primary to secondary, losing almost a gallon, I figured there's no harm in adding half a gallon of the watermelon juice. Now I'm really curious how it'll turn out :-). Check out the red foam forming on the surface a few hours later as the yeast starts going at the sugar in the watermelon... hope some of that sticks around to make the head reddish or pinkish... that would be memorable.
