Did you mash up the cherries at all? Just threw them in?They were slightly mashed, only from
being pitted, but they don't need to be mashed up that much.

I just added about 7lbs of cherries to a 5 gallon batch of Milk Stout. I froze fresh cherries

I just recently started one as well, although it's more of an information dump for my own

and on the blo...
