King orchards cherry concentrate is the bomb. 32oz in a 5 gallon adds tons of cherry aroma and tartness as well as a nice red/pink color. It's far cheaper than whole fruit or purees.

Thats good to know.

Booster, you know of any way you could bump that 7% on your cherry ale even higher?

I'd just use more DME to your liking. Probably Pilsen in color.

I'm in Muskegon, if you were closer I'd give you a bottle to see how she likes it.

Well, I gave this brew a go on Wednesday.

I used the AHS american wheat kit.

added towards the end of the boil the following:
3 lbs of extra light DME
1 bag of alcohol boost from AHS
my bag of priming sugar (I am kegging it so i figured what the hell)
6 cups of corn sugar

the OG was ridiculously high at 1.111. It is currently fermenting like crazy. I would equate the airlock activity to opening a CO2 tank under water. I just hope it keeps fermenting.

I plan to add strawberry extract and lactose when kegging.
