I am about to try a Kreik beer. This is a step beyond a Lamic, and I am having trouble locating actual sour Morello cherries. Will any variety of a sour cherry get roughly equivalent results?
2Belgian Lambic Kriek beers actually (traditionally) use a variety of cherry that is only grown in Belgium (and is becoming scarce). I forget the variety name now but they talk about it in the book Wild Brews, I do know it's not Morello.– MattressAug 26, 2011 at 20:47
3Montmorency is another good variety of sour cherries, and they're fairly common in the US.– bakaAug 26, 2011 at 21:48
Yes, any variety of sour cherry will give you equivalent results.
Oregon fruit company cans unsweetened sour cherries that I've used to make a flavored cider before. Check the wine section of your local homebrew supply.
