I have 4.5 gallons of the New World Westy recipe that I added Jolly Pumpkin dregs to. Cherries are now in season and I was planning on adding about 4 pounds of fresh cherries to the fermenter. I added the dregs in March with 1 oz of Hungarian Oak cubes.

Does 4 pounds of fresh cherries sound like a good amount?

Should I throw in some raisins?

I'm not really going for a clone here, just a good beer :O)

long arse brew day today! The Whales brewed what looks like about 85 gallons of Belgian Dark Strong Ale, plus we collected another 14 gallons of 2nd runnings and boiled that down to roughly 10 gallons for a one day grand total of 95 gallons of brew!! We're looking at 9-9.6% ABV after the cherries and the bugs get to the brew

After 3 years a project trade finally happened. Bsquared was in Tucson this weekend and brought a bottle of his Cuvee (sans cherries) and swapped one of my last bottles of Cuvee Amore. Build off those dregs Bsquared! They are the best bugs I've used.

So my club made a somewhat similar beer to this...the base recipe is pretty much the same, although we pitched a starter made from Consecration dregs, as well as another starter made with..I want to say white labs sour blend but I honestly forgot because it was a long time ago...then we racked it into a carbernet barrel and have been doing a solera on it.


It recently won a gold medal for Belgian Specialty, and was a strong candidate for BOS in a local SoCal competition a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't ready to drink the last time I saw you saq (which was maybe 4-5 months after we brewed it), but we should try to arrange a swap nowadays as it has vastly improved.

Bsquared I am drinking that bottle of this beer you dropped off for me.

Its a lot lighter in color than mine and a bit more mild in flavor. I think I recall you saying no cherries and I don't really pick up on any but it has a great sour character. Not too assertive, but not flabby either. I get a good level of barrel character and maybe a touch of the brandy.
Pretty enjoyable beer! Let me know when you get to cracking open mine.

I think I will crack open yours soon, I was planing on bringing to my brothers in Sacramento over the holidays, but I forgot it in San Diego! I'll post when I do.

I just read this thread. Probably one of the coolest threads on HBT. Thanks for the collection of stories, recipes and experience, folks...

I'm interested in doing something along these lines and I hope I can pull something like this together soon.
