Sounds like it would be worth a 1 gallon batch experiment, anyhow. Maybe two experiments, one
with almonds one with apricot pits. Of course it may be a drag acquiring all those apricot
pits. And almon...

Update:Well I've cracked open 2 bottles and both were flat. I think the plastic champagne style
corks didn't make a good enough seel on the Belgian style bottles. Oh well now it's a still
