Chill, aerate and pitch yeast (Activator smack pack)
Add 1.6kg (3.5lbs) of sanitized cranberries in primairy bucket when primairy fermentation is done (after 5 days in my case). Let the fruits ferment for a few weeks (~3) then rack to secondary. Let mature and mellow a bit for 3-4 weeks.

Add 5.3oz of lactose at bottling and carb to 2.2 volumes.

Tasting notes: A sweet and mild stout with a definitive sharp cranberry taste and aroma. Smooth and fruity. Chicks really enjoy it.

I would like to convert this to a extract recipe. How did you ensure clarity was sanitized prior to adding to fermenter?
