I bought a Cherry Ale kit from my LHBS. Apparently they ran out of the Oregon Cherry Puree can. Could I use any type of canned cherry or fresh cherry?

Go to the supper market and get frozen cherries. Heat them in as little water as you can and have them still covered. Pasteurize them at 160 F for 10 min then cool and add to secondary. It gives the best fresh fruit taste of any method I have tried.

Make certain you get PIE or tart cherries.

If you buy anything but fresh or whole frozen, make sure you check ingredients. You don't want anything with added sugars or preserviatives.
