Default My AG & AF apricot wheat.

I was at our local Rock Bottom brew/rest. The brewmasters special was an apricot wheat. Man was that tasty! A classic quenching american wheat with a hint of fruit.

AF stands for "all fruit". I didn't want extract or canned puree so I finely diced dried apricots dumped them into a freezer bag with water in the hopes of somehow re-hydrating the dried fruit. Overnight in the fridge it sucked up the water.

I stewed the cooties out of the orange slop and I've now racked my wheat on top of this sludge.

I used a ratio of 12 oz of fruit per gal. figuring I'd need less than whole fruit. Just a guess.

This has a dash of acid malt to hopefully balance the fruit.

Is it nice to bump this thread up several days from now to give a report?

This is a 2 gal test batch which I will rush a little and if its decent I will post a 5 gal recipe with minor flavor adjustments.

How long should beer rest on mushy apricots? 2 weeks?

I believe 5 days should do the trick.
