10 Days in Keg Tasting Notes:
Enough beer for me, enough fruit for SWMBO
7# American 2 row
1# Crystal 20L
1 oz Cascade (60 Minute)
3# Can Oregon Fruit Puree.
4oz bottle of apricot flavoring.
Mash with 4 gallons of water at 154 degrees for 60 minutes, stir every 15 minutes. Batch Sparge until I hit the 6 gallon mark on my boil pot.
Add SafeAle US-04 when cool.
Add 3# can of Apricot Puree at day #3, and give a good gentile stir.
Add bottle of Apricot Flavoring at bottling / Keg time.
This is a very nice blond ale with enough fruit that it kinda kicks you a bit, but after the second or 3rd drink, you appreciate it as beer too.

I am not a fan of Fruit Beer AT ALL, but this one is back on track for the holiday season.
