There was another addition of fresh frozen pitted Balaton Cherries from Colorado
the following season.....F.Y.I.   :P

Edit: Back in the mix today went 8# of Frozen/Thawed Balaton Cherries and a Quart of pie cherry juice
left over from the 1st fill AND about 4 gallons more of Rochefort that I brewed as a top off beer...worked NICE.
Busy mornin in the brewery....some clean up left to do...

Will the cherries from each addition stay in the barrel for as long as you cycle this particular style in the solera barrel?

Great thread BTW!

thanks. the cherries will remain in the solera. Someday, I think this may need to be retired.....like me.
I had designs on adding other bugs to it like pedio etc. but I am not certain of that now...
