Looks nice to me, is this a 10gal batch? I've never done a 90min addition, so can't comment on that, but if you know what to expect from that, this recipe looks tasty.

Jamil from www.thebrewingnetwork.com has a podcast on specialty beers which includes a recipe for a chocolate cherry stout. I don't have the recipe on hand, but you might want to listen to this for the recipe as well as technique.

Just listened to this podcast the other day. He says:
Start with a good stout recipe (he uses a Foreign Extra Stout)
Don't use cherry extract or it will taste like cough syrup. He uses 2 cans (6#) of Oregon Fruit cherry puree.
For chocolate he uses Hersey's Coco, less fat than unsweetened chocolate.

I havn't tried brewing this myself so I can't comment on the results.

i made this a few months ago. must agree with cb, DONT use extract go with the the puree! i didnt like the ending brew i made with the extract. the chocolate didnt seem to let the full cherry flavor come through.

Thanks for the comments guys, especially the heads-up on the extract not being a good choice. I believe i'll go the puree route. Thanks again.

Cheers

Someone posted a recipe here a while back that was made from a kit from one of the online stores. It looked really good and sounded good too. Might be worth digging around for.

Old thread back from the dead.. Guys I have a can of Oregon Cherry puree which will be going into a stout sometime soon. I'm wondering what kind of residual sweetness (if any) will remain from their puree? Should I use some lactose to increase the sweetness? I don't want the beer to be too dry.

even bigger revival from the dead.

Taste the beer before you add lactose. If it's too dry a little lactose might not hurt, the problem you could run into is a sour taste.

If you need to bring the sweetness back I'd say liquify some turbinado sugar, about half a cup with a cup of water and pour that in if you keg and keep that beer cold so the yeast doesn't fire up.


Could work.
