25# is low for 5 gal. I would use 6+#'s per gallon(30#'s for 5 gal). Cherry has alot of water and low flavor profile. You will need another6-9#'s for an f-pac. So 39-40#'s needed.

Wish I would have thought about it sooner, my neighors tree was looking good about 2 weeks ago. Birds seem to have gotten most of them now.

thinking about moving

I wish I lived closer to Kenesaw Ne, I love cherries and would defiantly give cherry wine a shot. Keep us posted on how it turns out.
