Can I get the recipe for Fruitcake Old Ale?

As much as I hate fruitcake, I've never made an Old Ale and it sounds fun.

HA! My clown dogs, (that's what they should be called). I noticed yours as well.

I will send you the recipe for the spiced bock and then let me know it that is something you would like to do for sure.

Had a great but busy beer weekend. Got the dubbel on the cherries. There have been a few firsts with this batch; first fruit beer, first dubbel. The primary finished out at 1.016 and the sample tasted great. Pretty excited to see how this one turns out as well as the other batches.

That looks tasty. Did you freeze, then thaw the cherrys before crushing them? The color certainly is appealing.
My bock is still bubbling away in primary. I'm bumping up the temp now about a deg C every 2nd day. At least another week to the diacetyl rest.

Yes, I froze them first; the picture in the top left was them frozen. I had spoken to one of the guys at Dry Dock Brewering/Brewhut and he said that freezing won't necessarily kill anything and since I didn't pit my cherries first, the best thing to do is smash them up real good with a potato masher. Add the pectic enzyme and let that do it's thing and wait and then crush some campden tablets and add that. He said to let it sit for 24 hours, out and uncovered and the campden will then evaporate and not affect the bottling. I'm very glad I asked him though because I was just going to throw the cherries in as they were frozen. I must've had the deer in headlights look when he started answering my questions because I really had no idea.

I was just trying to capture the different stages without clogging the thread.
