I am going to make a dry amber ale beer that is low in alcohol, but am thinking about adding a hint of cherry flavor to it. I am unsure if I should use a cherry extract or real cherries. If I use real cherries should I use sweet cherries or tart? Also I want to maintain the dryness of the beer. the recipe I am using is
- 3lb muntons amber DME
- 1lb briess golden light DME
- Safale US-05
- some roasted barley for color
- and some cara belgian for light caramel.
- I have not decided on the hops - maybe some Perle, or Willamette.
