Did a version of this with 8lbs(before I could find how much most were using) of peeled,
quartered, and frozen cucumbers in the secondary under a 5 gallon batch of AHBS's partial mash
cream ale. What ...

I added the cherries after reading other posts on here about raspberries. Something to do with

Did you find the BYO article? One thing they suggested was adding it directly to the fruit

With freezing I still halve them just to get as much strawberry in contact with the beer as

weeks I will h...
