TOTALLY different dude. I made my Cherry Wheat with both and IMO the marinchino cherries were better....a nice sweet taste where as the cherries that came with the kit where a bit tart. But again thats my opinion.

I wondered about using marichino cherries, but thought maybe too sweet? Sounds like not. How much malt did you use?

Interesting. I made a beer with a can of cherries in it and after 6 weeks or so, there was quite a bit of tartness. May have to try merinchino cherries next time.

I just used this kit:
Cupid's Cherry Crush Lager
MAKES APPROX. 2 GALLONS OF BEER IN ABOUT 4 WEEKS TIME.
Suggested lager time is 2 weeks.

Rich and fruity, this deep red, lightly malty brew starts sweet and warms you up. It features delicate wheat combined with pale malts and cherries.

RECIPE INCLUDES:
1 Can Whispering Wheat Weizenbier HME
1 Can Pale Export UME
1 Packet Dry Brewing Yeast (under lid of HME)
1 Can Dark Sweet Cherries in Heavy Syrup
1 Packet One-Step™ Sanitizing Cleanser

I just replaced the can of cherries with a jar of marichino cherries...came out fantastic!
