Default Long time in the 2nd

Back in April I started to make an apricot wheat. Since April it has remained in the 2nd. I've never before waited this long. I'd like to rack it but I have no idea is it's even worth it. What do ya'll think? Will the fermentation be to stuck to even prime it? Thanks!

It should be fine. The only batch I've ever had problems with from "too much time in secondary" was in there for over 4 years. Rack, prime, there should be plenty of yeast to carb - it takes very little yeast to manage that.

Only thing I can think of off hand would be that the fruit flavor won't be as pronounced. Maybe consider bottling/packing with more apricot flavoring, seeing as apricot is a subtle fruit the way it is.
