The OP said his was 1.094. The one I bought had it listed on the side as 1.092-1.115. Hope that helps.

How was your cherry flavor? My sample didn't have any cherry flavor. Since I have it in secondary, just aging a little, I am considering adding another can of cherry to it. Can't hurt anything.

I actually just used a 4oz bottle of raspberry extact from my LHBS in secondary. The vanilla beans and rasp together coming thru that chocolatey coffee is amazing!

For calculating the gravity from adding sugar I did a search and came up with this thread:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/how-...itions-249672/

Basically, you take the sugar you add from the Nutrition Facts on the label of the juice concentrate and convert it to lbs.

1 lb of sugar disolved in 1 Gal. of water gives you a gravity of 1.046. But you have to convert it to the amount of liquid you are adding it to. In my case I came up with a gravity addition of about .014. So i just added that to my OG.

I think im going to rack mine into my mini-kegs this weekend. Then, if it does come out bad, at least i didnt waste hours bottling it. And if it is good, it will be the first beer in my new mini-kegs and that will be cool.

Brewing this today. Really looking forward to trying it. I couldn't find cherry juice concentrate though. Do you think cherry puree is an okay substitute?
