Back in Aug. I made an apricot wheat using halved organic apricots in the secondary. I put them in a mesh bag after freezing, then flash pasteurizing them in boiling water. All went well, except it took me three months to get around to bottling it. Is this a problem? If anyone has any similar stories let me know.

You'll probably be OK.

I've had beer that was in the primary fermenter for nine months. While it wasn't awesomely great, it was decent, and definitely beer.
