Looking for advice: Sour cherry beer

Post by aubej » Tue Jul 14, 2020 9:42 pm

Hey all,

I have about 1 ~ 1.5 Gals of sour cherry juice I extracted from sour cherries I picked last year. I'd like to brew a light-ish beer with them and get a bit of the sour flavour from the cherries. I don't want to do a sour beer as I think it might be too much. Looking for some advice on a good base recipe.

Thoughts?

thanks,
Jason

Find a good wheat recipe online or in this forum. Rack the beer on the juice in secondary after the krausen drops.

Yeah exactly that. Or a simple Blonde works as well. I do this with my watermelon blonde except I just gently pour pure watermelon juice into my fermenter after primary fermentation is done. Also it will kick off a secondary fermentation most of the time.

Fermenting: Watermelon Blonde

In the hole: depends on the season
