Is it necessary to pitch new yeast when transferring the beer into the secondary and onto the cherries? I just did this myself and transferred onto cherries but am now concerned after reading this thread that I need to pitch some new yeast in as well to get it going enough to "eat" up the sugar in the cherries. And if it is necessary should I use a neutral yeast at this point or the original Wyeast 3278 I used or something else?

Think I may be going this a shot shortly. Would be a fun project.

@ Jakey. I am wondering the same. I've read that leaving it in the same vessel may be better than racking to a secondary so I planned to just add the fruit and dregs into the original carboy after about 6 months. But curious should I also add extra yeast as well...Any insight folks?

Also interested about bottling suggestions. What kind of amounts of priming sugar is good for this style. And will more yeast be needed then?

Since i didn't hear anything from anyone i went ahead and racked from primary into secondary on top of the cherries. I did add more yeast and it took right off. That being said I can't say whether the new yeast was necessary or not but I figured it couldn't hurt.

Me too! Once I get all my meads I to secondary, this is going to be my winter project, no question. Even if it doesn't turn out, this seems like FUN!
