I also put 1 - 49 oz can of Vinters Harvest Cherry Puree in each
carboy after 2 weeks, I do not use a secondary fermenter I just added it to
Primary after 10 day then let it sit for 14 days.

This beer turned out amazing! Placed 3rd in Category 23A at a local competition with an average score of 40. It is slightly smokey, slightly cherry tasting
Bottle or Keg...I prefer bottles because this age peaks at the 4-6 months of age.

Yeast Flavor notes- WLP002 tasted more Smokey
Wyeast 1028 tasted more fruity, cherry was more pronounced but still subtle

This sounds really tasty. Did you smoke the malt yourself? If so, can you provide a little insight on your method? I've got a bi Weber bullet and a bunch of different hardwoods around, so it would be cool to DIY some smoked malt.

Thanks for the recipe!

This is EXACTLY what I wanted to do for a Porter. I had this idea in my head for a few months so it's a bitter-sweet feeling finding it on here. I'm happy to find that this recipe has already been tried and has had success, but I'm sad that it's not something I came up with haha. Going to attempt to brew this next week.

Good luck with it.
It is a great beer I think we are going to make it every August to have as a nice winter drink.

I got inspiration to brew something like this yesterday when I was drinking French Roast Coffee and eating cherries for breakfast. Glad to see I'm not the only one thinking about it!

I'm thinking this combo may work well as a schwarzbier as well.

What happens with the pure? Do you strain the beer before bottling?

Well we let it sit on the yeast for about 2 weeks or more, by then it settles to the bottom and we use the siphon, and just siphon off the beer and leave the puree at the bottom

Brewed this earlier today. Great recipe. Tasted awesome going into the fermentor. The only thing I changed was the bittering hops, I used twice as much saaz because they are one of my fav's. Was thinking that I might not even use the cherry's after taste testing it before fermentation. But I probably will. . . . .

Has anyone done this with frozen cherries? I've been itching to do a cherry porter or maybe a stout.

Charlie papazian has a few recipes in which he steeps the cherries at knockout and transfers them into the primary. After five days he scoops as many of the cherries as possible out.

I've been thinking of adding the frozen cherries into a secondary to steep for a while.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Hey HopSpunge,
Feel Free to not use the cherry, but it wasn't a very strong cherry flavor. It just added another dimension to the beer if you ask me.
I was actually thinking about using more cherry and more smoked cherrywood malt on the next batch. Let me know how the finished product turns out either way!

I have used frozen fruit in other beers, and it turned out good. Just make sure you sanitize some way. I usually use a bit of vodka or whiskey.
I did use a vanilla vodka to sanitize some blackberries for Mead and the Mead ended with a nice hint of vanilla. If not liquor then steam the fruit without letting it hit water.
