Ferment for 7 days, or until fermentation slows. Rack to secondary and add cherry flavoring and vanilla extract. Leave 14 days, or until fermentation ends. Add Gelatin (optional) 3 days before bottling and cold crash in fridge to clarify beer (eliminate chill haze).

Bottle and condition 21 days at room temp. Chill 3 days and enjoy.

Lots of Cherry nose and lingering Vanilla flavor..with just enough hops in there to make it interesting...
