Deepsouth,

I am a new brewer, in fact I just bottled my first batch (American brown ale -extract kit) on Sat and am impatiently waiting... So, the question I have is would the apricot purée work with something like a cream ale extract kit?

If so, would you recommend adding the purée into the secondary as you did with your recipe? How long should I let the secondary go?

Thanks for any input you can provide!

~John

mmmmmmmmmmmm apricot cream ale. sounds like it would work for me. next time brew this beer, i'll keep it in secondary about a month rather than a week. being inexperienced in fruited beers myself, i was concerned about the putting the apricot on the yeast as i didn't know how it would 'act'.

BTW, what did you use for a secondary fermentor?

If it was a 5 Gal carboy or bucket, did you have any issue with not having enough room? I was debating about picking up another 6 Gal carboy for fermenting beers like this with additions. Whaddya think?
