So I have been researching different ways to add cherry flavor to cider and I came across tart cherry juice concentrate, which is both sold as a food/ingredient and as a nutritional supplement.
I am curious if anyone has used this ingredient in beer. My thinking is that it could be added to the keg and would add cherry flavor and a little sweetness. I read that the stuff is generally around 1.050 - 1.055 reconstituted (1 fl oz concentrate to 7 oz water). That would presumably mean adding a pint of the stuff would add around .01 - .011 to the SG of a full keg. That wouldn't really be too much if added to a really dry porter or stout, or even a blond ale or something. Obviously the beer wouldn't be stable at room temperature, but if it was kept cold or otherwise stabilized, it could be used fairly easily.
Has anyone done this? A google search shows me lots of "tart cherry" or "montmercy cherry" beers out there, but I was wondering if any experienced homebrewers could shed light. My current plan is to split a 32 oz bottle of the stuff between a keg of dry cider and a keg of porter or blond ale.
