Sorry, is a moderator able to move this post to the proper category and delete this post? I clicked sours and wild instead of specialty/fruit. My apologies!

Sounds and looks delicious. Do you recall how you treat the cherries exactly? I'm new to brewing and especially with fruit additions and interested in that process more for this.
Thanks
