That's what I'm planning on doing for my spiced cherry dubbel.
The recipe is from Randy Mosher's book Radical brewing.

I think I'm going to order frozen tart cherries from Michigan as I missed this years harvest.

Here's a link to one of the places I might order from.
You can get either canned packed in water or frozen.

I used 4 lbs of dark cherries in a stout, and they give a nice subtle flavor. I hate fruit beers that are overly fruity.

Well, I may have to pass on the cherries. I brew in S. Korea where homebrewing supplies are limited.

I thought I had seen canned cherries in water for a decent price, but it turns out they are close to $7 for a 400g can. There were fresh cherries in the supermarket, but the were extremely expensive!! $13 for a tiny plastic bin, must have bin around 500 grams.

That's getting a bit pricey. It costs me around $60 just to brew a batch of beer (extract brewing). I have recently knocked that down to around $50 by collecting the yeast from the fermenter.

Thanks for all the posts.
