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.
Thanks for the reply. Something to think about.

This sounds delicious, however, does anyone have any recommendations for using an extract with it instead of all grain. I haven't made the jump yet.

Forgive the ignorance, but I'm making the jump from extract to partial grain here. For the 5.5 gallon recipe, do we want/need the whirlfloc? And if so, the whole tablet or just a half?

BrewCityBaller,
If you just plan on drinking the homebrew yourself or with friends, then whirlfloc is not necessary.

If you plan to enter competitions then whirlfloc helps with clarity and will get you a couple extra points.

Doesn't effect flavor... Full tab is good for 5-10 gallons as far as I know.

I just put 1/2 of the original recipe amounts into Beersmith and added 10 pounds of sour cherries to be added to the secondary rather than the cherry puree. Thoughts on how this would turn out?
