Taste Notes

Plain wort was very nice. Apricot puree should add 12 points according to program and I added that to the OG. I will add 4 oz. honey to apricots when boiling and add that with the three day addition. Bottled on 4-30-12 after allowing to ferment at 75F to finish, and final gravity was an amazing 1.005! That super yeast must like to eat. Smelled very good with much apricot aroma. It is a good brew. Very aromatic and tastes of apricots a lot. Most popular beer with my friends I have ever brewed, and quite simple, Cheers!

Notes

20 minute boil with two pounds of extract with hops as listed. Should yield 19.6 IBU's. Add other four pounds of extract and honey as late addition at flame out. Cool and add pre-boiled water to make five gallons of wort and pitch super yeast. Soak 24 oz. dried apricots in large bottle of apricot nectar over night. Boil for 20 min (add pectin if desired). Puree in blender (add more nectar if needed). Add to fermenter at the three day mark along with four onces more honey. Ferment out and bottle with 2/3's cup sugar, 1 oz. of apricot extract and 4 oz. lactose added to the bottling bucket. Store at room temp for 17days, refrigerate 7 days and enjoy.
