Default Cherry Stout

I was wondering if I could get some advice. My friend and I would like to brew a cherry stout. I'm sure I can come up with a good basic stout recipe, but I'm not sure of a good way to add cherry to it. If you could help us go in the right direction, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Many use these with great success in fruit beers: Oregon Fruit Puree

The Oregon Fruit purees are usually available at home brew supply shops and are an easy and effective way of adding fruit to a beer. Either add the puree to the beer in the primary or put the fruit in the secondary and rack the beer on to it then.

Thanks. I like the looks of it. How much sugar is in it and how would I account for that using beersmith?

From here:

http://www.oregonfruit.com/product_p...weetCherry.pdf

It states between 20-26 brix. Using this calculator:

Brewheads.com - Convert Between Brix and Specific Gravity

That's 1.083-1.110 SG. I'd just average it and use 1.096.
