I'm OK with the cherries, from what I've read on the style, it's a common thing to do.

I have risen from the ashes of lameness and brewed my barrel beer!
This stuff is dark!

What type of sour cherries are we looking for and how much? I found some online that are sour cherries with sugar and water added in a 24oz jar. This company in Dundee, OR has tart cherries in water.

Safeway around here has those exact cherries in stock. I like that it's stored in water instead of corn syrup like some other brands. For my cherry stout I added 5 lbs of dark cherries in the baggies from the frozen food section and they worked alright.

Myself, I'm fine with us each adding our own brand/style of cherries to the mix. Most kriek recipes call for 6 lbs of cherries per 5 gallon batch, so portion accordingly.

This beer is about fermented out and smells great. Thinking about just throwing it in the keg and doing tap hits.

HA...tap hits! Nice.
I took a reading during the weak and had it down to 1.009! It's damn dark and does smell intense!
