How much cherry flavor comes out?
Probably half a gallon...
no cherry taste at all (the puree honestly didn't taste much like cherry anyway)
This thing is so dry and bitter I'm calling the experiment a fail, I'm just wondering why it fermented so low.
I suspect the other beer (which tastes great, but I'm a crazy hophead - 120ish IBU's at 5.5% abv) wasn't really done fermenting before I kegged.
I guess the lesson is keg when the gravity is what I want it to be and don't let it keep going :X
