I am planning to brew this one next month, excited too see how it turns out since cherry beers have been hit and miss with me.
On several occasions JZ strongly suggests using high quality canned cherries, such as Oregon Brand. His reasoning is that 1) don't have to worry about getting them in season since they are usually canned during the the hight of the season. 2) They have been sterilized so much lower concern for contamination 3) He made several side by side batches (with fresh, canned, and extract) he and other tasters felt the canned had better flavor and aroma (obviously this is totally subjective). The BCS recipe is built to use the canned.
