Maybe I'll get some more cherries and vanilla beans and make another batch exactly the same but add the fruit/vanilla in the secondary, then compare how they come out...

This batch is 18 hours post pitching, lock is bubbling along all happy like, color is pretty nice, the picture doesnt show it well

there is some foam up krausen like stuff in the neck but it doesn't reach the lock at all and seems to climb then fall back a little
