great tartness from the cranberries followed by all the great flavors of a stout. took it to my lhbs to get some feedback, he asked for more. it's nice when a award winning brewer and certified judge wants more of your beer.

do a normal mash and boil. while that's going on mash up berries in the bottom of your pail. when boil is done pour the hot wort on top the berries. primary 2 weeks secondary 1 week. i didn't take any gravities for this. let it age 3-4 weeks in bottles. great for thanksgiving.

Sounds like a recipe I would like to try soon. One question though: How do you cool your wort if you are pouring it straight into the fermenter? A little more information on your brewing process would be great

Answering the Dan's post, You can chill it with a wort chiller or just let it cool. Either way, don't pitch the yeast until it cools to below 80f
