Default Turkish Apricots

anyone ever use organic Turkish apricots in secondary? If so, how did the beer turn out? I'm thinking of trying it but not the entire batch, just 1-2 gallons and also wondering how much I should put in. Any help would be appreciated!!!

I've never tried it...but make sure there's no sulfur dioxide used on the apricots. It is often used as a preservative/antimicrobial on dried fruit (particularly apricots). It could interfere with your yeast and/or could impart a sulfur flavor/aroma to your beer.

Not sure if organic dried apricots use it or not, but the label should tell you.

Thanks. I made sure there was no sulfur dioxide. I'm giving it a try.

Unfortunately, it didn't work. The aprocot c infected the beer and I had to dump it. Fortunately, I only experimented with 2 gallons instead of 5.
