Default Cherry Puree

Hello,
I bought a Cherry Ale kit from my LHBS. Apparently they ran out of the Oregon Cherry Puree can. Could I use any type of canned cherry or fresh cherry?

when i did my cherry wheat.. i used the extract and it turned out very good.. and it was alot easier than using the puree.. i used puree in my raspberry and the stuff looked like MUD for awhile.. of course i had to use some clarifying agents and it turned out great!

Go to the supper market and get frozen cherries. Heat them in as little water as you can and have them still covered. Pasteurize them at 160 F for 10 min then cool and add to secondary. It gives the best fresh fruit taste of any method I have tried.

Make certain you get PIE or tart cherries.

If you buy anything but fresh or whole frozen, make sure you check ingredients. You don't want anything with added sugars or preserviatives.
