I have been given a quart of home made natural maple syrup and 2-3 pounds of choke cherries with the direction to make beer. I am looking for ideas on what to do with these (to be used separately). Any ideas? I was thinking of priming an amber ale with the syrup and maybe a cherry wheat with the choke cherries? The cherries are pretty tart. Should I use a higher malt recipe to balance the tartness?
Thanks for any ideas.
