Very timely post! I told my neighbor I was going to brew a chocolate cherry stout. I've never brewed one so I didn't have a go-to recipe. 3 lbs Crystal 40 and 2 lbs chocolate malt! I'm looking forward to brewing this. Unless I can find some decent frozen at the Megamart, I'll probably go with two cans of the Oregon puree (assuming it is in stock at the LHBS). That would give 6-1/8 lbs vs the 5 lbs in the recipe. That's 20% more than the recipe, but given how subtle cherry flavor can be, I presume that won't be a problem, though I should probably taste it every day to make sure. I've never used the Oregon puree. Anybody have any issues with it? With the much larger cherry surface area with the puree, would two cans be too much and I should just use one (3 lbs vs 5 lbs in the recipe)?
