I've read a lot about using peach to flavor beers... It doesn't have a super lot of flavor, and I think it's Randy Mosher that recommends having some apricot extract on hand at bottling/kegging, just to subtly augment the peach flavor with a similar flavor.

Not a bad Idea. When it gets close to bottling time ill have to sample it and see how its coming along. If not I'll give that a shot.

I finally tried a bottle of this. It came out very very good. It has a really clean taste which allows the peach flavor to come thru. Nice citrus like flavor. A good summer beer.

I'm looking to make a Blackberry Wheat and this seems like it might be a good recipe to work from. Do you think I could just swap the 3# of peach for blackberry?

My one concern is sanitizing. I was thinking I'd have to boil the fruit at least briefly, but it sounds like you didn't do anything of that sort. Why the freezing?

(I was also going to puree the berries for greater surface area and smaller pieces to make clogging less likely -- the Blackberry Barleywine blew its top even with a blow-off, though in that case the fruit was in the primary.)

freezing breaks down the walls of the fruit, so it is utilized better

Doing a blueberry one soon

So the peach flavor really came through well? In Daniels's Designing Great Beers he says peach has a really subtle flavor so you have to use a lot of it - somewhere around 2# per gallon, so I was surprised to see the "small" amount you used.

I was planning on making a similar beer this weekend, using the exact same strategy with the peaches. Mine will be 5.5 gal with an OG around 1.052 so I could see it taking/needing more peach flavor, but I was planning on using somewhere between 7-10# of peaches. Thoughts?

I made a very similar recipe to this last summer with 5lbs. of skinned, pitted, and chunked peaches. I used a full lb. of honey malt and it seemed to be plenty peachy to me. SWMBO has been hinting that it's time to make some more.
