Bottled the "Watermelon Red" today—and wow, I got a much stronger watermelon flavor than I was expecting. I wonder if it will fade after conditioning and aging a bit. Looks like it will definitely be ready (or at least carbonated) for the 4th of July, so I'll update once I taste the final product. FG = 1.010, though I'd have to do some complicated arithmetic and figure out how the 2.5 quarts of watermelon juice changed the SG in the secondary if I wanted to calculate ABV.
