Default Calculating SG of canned cherries

I totally messed up my Sour Cherry Ale and forgot to measure SG. I also put my cherries in right from the start of fermentation. I've calculated the sugar content of the canned cherries and I would like to get all the information needed to add them to ProMash to add them as a sugar so I can get an idea of what my SG should be. Can anyone help me out?

35.6394005 grams of sugar in 1 pound of cherries
0.0785714286 pounds of sugar per pound of cherries

0.540178572 pounds of sugar in 6.87500 pounds of cherries

These are the cherries I used: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Oregon-Fru....5-oz/10319691 (x10)

Thanks guys

Thus you have added 0.54 pounds of extract to your brew length. Just add that number as glucose or sucrose.
