I made an apricot wheat a few weeks ago. I am moving to the secondary today or tomorrow. Wondering if anyone has recommendations for the secondary. I was going to put a half pound of orange honey and 2 lb's of fresh apricot puree. What would you suggest?

I'm interested by the idea of using honey in the secondary; are you concerned that that will reactivate your dormant yeast, and restart active fermentation? If that's your intention, why wait until "secondary" to add the honey and the apricots?

It did reactivate them a little but I was doing it for flavor. I'm new so I just am following a recipe I got from here
