This year it is below freezing at night, some days get above freezing. Much more what one is used to seeing.

If the weather is good, they are predicting a bumper crop due to the trees resting for a year.

I'm liking the sounds of that! I at least want to brew a 5 gallon batch of my Cherry Stout...if not 10. A 10 gallon batch will require 20 pounds. 10 pounds cost 30 bucks last year. I hope that the price will be cheaper if the harvest is greater this year!

The wife found some Michigan tart cherries for her Rumtopf. She said they were a little more than double what she was used to paying.

I know this is an outdated post but this brew is quite tasty

Taste Notes
Ladies love this and so do i. Maybe just a little less cherry concentrate.
1oz Mahlab 5 min boil. 1 pint sour cherry concentrate keg. 50/50 RO
Mahleb is basically groung cherry pits.

What flavors do you find the ground cherry pits adds?

Those add an almond like, or nutty taste in the meads that I have tasted with it. You can find mahleb at a Middle Eastern market.

I agree with hopfenundmaiz. A nutty and slight almond note when I taste it prior to kegging  with cherry concentrate.
