The beer wound up very good, especially with some citric acid added to make it good and sharp. The process of extracting the cherries in vodka dulled the taste a bit.

Welp, it's Thursday. The airlock is still bubbling at about a pop every 2 seconds (the fastest it's been). The plan is in fact to test tomorrow, not least because I'm hitting the gym tonight, and...
