I'm making a brew that calls for Apricot Puree 49 oz of it. It's the Oregon brand.
I checked on this product and it is an "Aseptic" Sterilized product.
So you can dump it right in your fermented beer.
My question is, Can I use these Apricot Halves that have no preservatives, and ONLY contain ; Apricots, Water and sugar? I would think these would be OK to use just like the Oregon puree?
If It's OK to use these, How would I go about it?
Puree in a sanitized blender without the juice from the can? Or would I also add what juice is in the can too?
Would I have to sanitize them in anyway? I know its not good to boil the fruit. Would I have to freeze the puree after I make it and Before I put it in the beer to maybe kill off any nasties?
I may just ferment this batch in a keg , soo Would it behoove me to put the Puree in, like a hop bag so I wouldn't have a crap load of sediment?
This question goes out to the "FRUIT EXPERTS"
