Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Re: Best approach to Start Solera
Since my barrel was fairly new and had only little use,

I am pulling 5 gallons out this weekend...planning

on replacing that with cherries,brett,mahlab,dregs from

Avery Depuceleuse bottles...then it gets the long sit.

Re: Best approach to Start Solera
The beer looks very nice, did you get a distinct wine flavor when you tasted the gravity sample?

And I suppose you're going to top up after the cherries finish fermenting?

the red wine....going to top up with more rochefort when

fermentation subsides. Thanks tom

Re: Best approach to Start Solera
Now I gotta ask what to expect since it is still fermenting and actively bubbling. Will the fruit (cherries) get completely consumed over time?

Photo of (pre-Cherry)beer in my glass and was one month on the new oak. Taste is nice, I could handle more oak but you can detect it in the mix.

Re: Best approach to Start Solera
Looks like a tasty brew. I've heard the bugs will eat the cherries and even the pits if you give them enough time. I don't know about that from personal experience though.

I did just put about 10lb of cherries in my 5gal batch of 10mth-old lambic. I had 4lb from my own tree, 2 from my mother-in-law's tree, and I bought 4lb of sweet cherries from the store. I pulled a gallon of the lambic and racked the rest onto the cherries in a 6gal carboy. I'll add the other gallon back once I'm sure the fermentation won't blow out the top of the fermenter. The lambic is not bad, its got mild horseblanket and is not very tart yet. I'm hoping the cherries and more time will rectify the lack of tartness.
