I thought I should put an update about my Kriek. It's been quite the process of patients with my Flanders Red Ales that has been going on for almost 2 years now. This Kriek is 2 parts young Flanders (1 year) and 4 parts old Flanders (19-months old). It has been sitting on 4 lbs of local tart cherries and it seems to be really tasty right now. The thing is, I blended my first Flanders Red with these two base beers and the resulting carbonated beer is lacking body. Going through a blending session really makes you appreciate what the professional Lambic, Gueze, Flanders, American Wild Ale brewers and blenders do! Because I know I'm going to have to blend this Kriek when I finally bottle it (probably with a Brown Porter) I decided that I wanted to add a bunch more cherries because it's going to get diluted.
