    I recently brewed a belgian blonde and was thinking about racking it on top of some watermelon, I know the most popular watermelon is wheat but Im looking to do something a little out of the norm.

    Belg Pilsner 9lb 13oz
    Munich 1lb
    Biscuit 5.3oz
    Melanoiden 3.5

    Sty. Golding 1.36oz 60min
    Saaz .71 30min
    Table sugar 10.6oz 15min
    mash temp 158
    WLP 530 yeast
    Revvys Recipe.

    Any thoughts or ideas?

    the only watermelon beer i've had was New Belgium's Heavy Melon, http://www.newbelgium.com/beer/heavy-melon, and i seriously enjoyed that beer. Super drinkable, good watermelon character too. I'd take some notes from them. I also know that Ballast Point makes a beer called Watermelon Dorado, i haven't tried it yet, though.
