The Juniper Rye Bock is in the fermenter awaiting temperature stabilization at 50 F for the pitch. O.G. 1.078. I uses German bock yeast instead of the Danish. Should be ok. I added some brown sugar to the boil to dry it out some. Also I just cant help myself. I like big beers.

Had a great but busy beer weekend. Got the dubbel on the cherries. There have been a few firsts with this batch; first fruit beer, first dubbel. The primary finished out at 1.016 and the sample tasted great. Pretty excited to see how this one turns out as well as the other batches.

That looks tasty. Did you freeze, then thaw the cherrys before crushing them? The color certainly is appealing.
My bock is still bubbling away in primary. I'm bumping up the temp now about a deg C every 2nd day. At least another week to the diacetyl rest.
