** For the wheat ale** Trying to go for a Cascade / Galaxy aroma, with a blueberry flavour. Debating between 4kg (9.7 lbs) frozen blueberries, or 2-4 oz of Natural blueberry extract. http://homebrewsupplies.ca/product/716- ... -flav-4oz/
** For the cream ale** Trying to go for a plain/simple cream ale, with a vanilla/ cherry/ both flavour. Here, I have the option of getting 4.5kg (10 lbs) frozen cherries, or a 2-4 oz of Natural cherry extract. (similar to the blueberry one above.)
PS: Concerned about a good fruit flavour. Not too subtle, but not overpowering. (4-ish on a scale of 10?). Also trying to not make it taste like cough syrup - I read conflicting posts online about the advantages of frozen fruit over extract, especially when it comes to cherries.
PS1: Which one should I go for, in each case and what quantities (for the flavour strength I want)?
