Puree is what i used. Bought from the wine making section of my lhbs.
Racked mine into the mini-kegs today. It tastes so much better than i thought it would after the first sample. The cherry is still pretty much non-existent and the chocolate is not as overpowering. Aging definitely does this beer good. I have already played with the recipe and procedure for the next batch, which is probably not far off. I will give it 2-3 weeks before tapping one if the kegs and report back. Magno, thanks again for the great idea!
