A really drinkable beer that I will purchase when I can find it.
Brewed in Hamilton Montana...they did a great job on this beer.

Did you use any specialty malts or is the color contribution from the cherries alone.  Your beer looks like a good reddish/tan leather.  

Yes there are specialty malts and from the photo trail I show, it has changed from dark  ruby brown
to this lighter color must be from the cherries...tankdeer, that is really how it looked  NOT very clear yet.....
Look closely there are whitish flecks in it....pellicle and mehlab chunks...they are in focus.

goggle " herman holtrop rochefort" and that is the base recipe I follow sort of...

Sampled this beer today and got an update photo for you all...

the stuff is coming together nicely, NOT finished yet however.
Aroma is Cherry Pie, flavor is sour cherry for sure, and the mahleb finishes with a
nifty floral thing, not much oakiness yet....color has migrated from dark brown/red to lighter brown with red hues.
chunks of pellicle and mahleb floating around.

well if it ain't a prize winner, at least I think I can enjoy this! oh, and I have been known to share.
I think a couple more months might not be a bad thing for this beer.
 ;)

  I may need to buy stock in bottles though.  Until I brew again, I will be working on improving my fermenter and getting a bigger brew pot. 

Too Late for you...ha ha ha ha ha.....you are BITTEN....you need to buy a Keg setup and stop messing with bottles...

when you do, life gets easier....plus you can always bottle from the keg.

If you really want to get wild, cut a couple or 3 fresh sprigs of Juniper branch
add to some hot wert long enough to stew some flavor out... then add that liquid to
your cooling wert as it is going in the fermenter....don't over do it tho, unless you like
the taste of gin flavored beer...and because there are oils that might hinder head retention.

Research the term "Sahti"

I am gonna brew a saison soon with Juniper berries.  Hint; Freeze the juniper for a spell
prior to crushing and putting in the boil for better extraction of flavors.
Have fun and good luck.

Gonna brew a nice ale with some US-05, hopefully just a nice amber drinkable ale...

Calling it the American Farmhouse Ale.... ;D

Sour cherries are GREAT in Lambics (heard of a kriek?).  Supposedly the Balaton is the closest you can get to the Morello cherries in Europe, as the Montmorecy cherries are not as good for beer.

Thanks Narvin, ya saved me from having to say it. maybe we can get Pinnah straightened out yet.... :o

As far as the BEST cherries, well they would be the freshest ones you can obtain...and MI is just too far away from BFE Wyhomin.

I got my email notification that the limited opportunity time frame to order has begun for this years crop.

Happy Independence Day. I hope we can stay that way.

Cheers.  :)

Nice description of the battle that apparently never ends.

I spent my 4th relaxing in  nice park like surroundings near a river in relative peace and quiet.
Thankful for friends and family.

Hail storm took out a chunk of my gardening efforts and I need to get the adjuster out to look at the roof
I see shingle gravel lying around now.
