California Cherry Ale

Tonight we made some (hopefully) delicious homebrew using 5 lb of fresh cherries, light DME, Willamette hops, and a California Ale yeast. I’ll post pictures of the wort as the fermentation begins tomorrow. The last batch, a German Kosch (umlout over the “o”) turned out nicely, thanks to the kit I bought from Oak Barrel Winecraft, a stellar homebrew shop in Berkeley. Thanks Joe for keying me into this place!
