comment How to use Tart Cherries
@sgwill thanks for the great info, in your opinion should I be treating these cherry beers just like any other fruit? The seem to often appear in sours krieks etc, are there any special considerations for those styles?

comment What is a whirlpool chiller?
You are comparing cooling a small amount of wort and recircing to the hot kettle, to whirlpooling the entire kettle about a chiller coil simultaneousky. In terms of the thermodynamics those are not equivalent. Jamil makes this very point.
