Default Cherry Stout

The cherry stout recipe in the last BYO mag looked interesting. I also seen a C. stout in the stores ( I think it was a Goose Island) but at $12.00 a 4 pack I still have'nt tasted one yet. Anyone have any imput/ recipes on this beer?

I made one about a year ago, was gonna do it again this year, but haven yet. I dont have my log around right now, but I think I used about a half pound of bakers chocolate (will use cocoa powder next time) and 2 lbs frozen cherries. Sorry i dont remember the grain or hops bills off hand. I can get them for you later if you like.

I believe there have been a couple other posts about this. You might try a search.

I bottled my cherry stout 2 days ago. Tastes awesome. The distinct roasty character really complements the tartness from the sour cherries and cranberries. Yum! Thaw out the cherries beforehand if they're prefrozen. Coarsely chop up the cranberries with an immersion blender once you add them to the wort. Make sure that you add the fruit right after flameout, so that the heat can sanitize the fruit before the wort cools.

I made a cherry stout a while back. I actually used Northern Brewer kit. Kegged 3 weeks ago. very good. Great mix of flavors. Roasted barley,hops,cherry. Creamy mouthfeel. It got better after 3 weeks kegged, but I almost think natural conditioning in bottles would be better, then cold condition 6 months. next time maybe!
