I'm interested in this idea...when to add the fruit.
I've got a Kriek going (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f72/lamb...-kriek-102829/
) that I added 10lbs of cherries to after 5 months.
You can see on the notes that I added the fruit but got basically no evidence of fermentation (i.e. airlock activity) for nearly a week, so I punted and tossed in some ale yeast, and it took off. Now I'm going to leave this guy for another year.
What is the experience of others when adding fruit after a significant delay from primary ferment?
Do you just add fruit and nothing else?
Repitch some ale yeast? Repitch a lambic blend?
