Alright, got another buddy at work to join in. So we have 2 beers left and if any of you know someone who maybe interested, let them and myself know.

Finally came up with a name for the Dubbel.
Farty Santa's Belch'em Cherry Dubbel.

I am looking to get a feel for how long to leave the dubbel on the cherries? It's going on 9 days today and some people said a week some people say 2 weeks. Any thoughts?

I did a sour brown w/ cherries and I left it on the cherries (4lbs worth) for 2 weeks. Turned out perfect IMO.

I'm hoping to have the fruitcake old ale brewed middle of next month.

Cool and thanks. So I'll get that bottled this weekend it will put it just at two weeks. the Cherries caused another blowout but I didn't lose to much, fortunately. This WLP500 is wicked but it is a workhorse.

Hey guys, still looking for someone to do the gruit? I am fairly new to AG brewing, having just done by 2nd batch last weekend on a buddies rig, and would gladly take a shot at the christmas gruit.

In case anyone is interested, I kegged the Juniper Rye Bock, and have dropped it to lager temperature. I figure two months and then carb it up. The Juniper is fairly strong now, but I assume that it will mellow over time. Tasted great though. Finished at 1.017 and an ABV of 8.5%.

I unfortunately do not have experience with this style. Hopefully someone can chime in that does.


I bottled the dubbel last night after all the cherries and fermentation I ended with 37 bottles; just enough. There was about 1-2 quarts left int he secondary I couldn't get out because the cherries were clogging the Siphon.

After the secondary on the cherries it came out a bit drier than I thought it would. OG 1.076 FG was 1.010 with an ABV of 8.66%. The taste is good but it will defintely need it's time to mellow out. The color of this beer is fantastic. My bottle caps were marked with a cherry.

If you all are ok with this, I am going to close out the signup since I am lower on bottles than expected. So that will give us 11 beers of Christmas instead of 12. I don't want to short change anyone deadset on 12 beers so if you aren't okay with the 11 let me know and I will throw the few bottles for myself in.

Ok with me. I'm pumped that we got to 11.
