Thanks for the tip. Yeah, I added it directly to the primary when I pitched the yeast, so I guess that explains it. I just made another batch of this, but this time went with extract when I bottled. If this doesn't come out the way we want, I'll try your suggestion of adding the puree when fermentation slows/stops.
