PM me if you want directions, I live not too far off of 64 near the Mercury exit.

I am off Thursday and Friday and I even plan on brewing one of those days.

Somethign still doesn't look right with this recipe. I ran it through Promash to get you an idea on how much Warrior hops to use--but looking at the OG I'm only getting about 1.038. I don't have the recipe with me right now so I can't confirm it in the mag.

If someone can type the exact recipe out I'll figure the specs in promash.

What does the mag say for IBUs and OG?

Yep . . .it's been awhile since I have done an extract brew, but I ran this one through Promash . . . and I got 1.041, which misses BYOs own stats on the beer.

The recipe book indicates that this should be: OG - 1.047, FG - 1.012, IBU - 18, SRM - 9, and ABV - 4.6%.

I went ahead and brewed this over the weekend... everything went well.. I didnt take a hydrometer reading after brewing, so I have no idea what my OG was...

I used the canned puree' when i brewed this. Added to secondary for 2 weeks, then i ended up racking over to a tertiary for (i think) a week. I wanted to get it off the fruit (so it wasn't) too fruity, but still wanted it to clear a bit more. The flavor & aroma turned out really good this way. Just a hint in the finish.

I guess if i were to use the extract i would do it at bottling/kegging, and just add a little at a time until the flavor is where you want it.

I made the clonebrews recipe, but I used cherry extract instead of the apricot. I used 3 oz, and added it to the bottling bucket just prior to bottling. The next time I make this recipe, I'll be increasing the extract to the entire 4 oz bottle.

I did, however, increase the malt/hop bill slightly to increase the alcohol content.

It's mighty tastey after about 7 weeks in the bottle. Even the wife (who normally hates beer) thinks it's mighty good!

As a matter of fact, I happen to have my brewlog with me, as I'm hitting the LHBS on the way home. (Still not 100% sure what I'm going to make this weekend)

Original (changes) from CloneBrews

1/2# Crystal 60L - 20 min steep @ 150F
5.5# (6#) M&F Light DME
.5# (1#) F&F Wheat DME

1.5oz (2oz) Tettnanger - 60 min
.25oz Willamette - 15 min
.25oz Cascade - 15 min

1tsp Irish Moss

Wyeast 1056 American Ale yeast.

@ secondary (added to bottling bucket) add 3oz Apricot extract (used 3 oz Cherry)
Bottle w/ 1.25 cup extra light DME


OG 1.051-1.053 (1.061)
FG 1.011-1.013 (1.016)
ABV 5.1% (6.5%)

I like the increased alcohol version, I think it balances very well. I'd probably increase the late hop addition a little next time. I'll add 4oz cherry extract on the next batch as well.

Hope no one minds me bring back this thread, but... I'm brewing a Apricot wheat and plan on using the Brewcraft Apricot (liquid) extract. My LHBS also reccommended that I add the extract to taste before bottling, although I've also read that you don't want to unnecessarily add air to the brew... so, I guess I just pour some extract in, stir and pull out a sample?

Sorry if this is a beginner question, but... I am a beginner. Thanks.
