Notes

Steep the Cara-Pils and 2-row base malt 152° for an hour or until starch conversion is complete, then mash out at 170° and sparge with 180° degree water.
Heat the water to boiling and add hops. Boil for 45 minutes and add the Irish Moss. Boil 15 minutes more, then turn off heat and chill beer to 68° as quickly as possible. Rack to the primary fermenter and pitch the yeast.

After primary fermentation has completed (2-3 weeks), dump the 10 pounds of frozen cherries in the bottom of the fermenter and rack the beer on top of the cherries. Ferment in secondary for as long as you can stand it. I recommend a minimum of two months.
Then, bottle with corn or cane sugar to 2.5 volumes of CO2.
