Hey everyone,
I'm new to the forum and semi new to home brewing so please be nice. I was thinking of brewing a #9 type of beer using a great pale ale recipe. I have had great results with this recipe and was thinking of adding some apricot purée to spice it up a little. Any thoughts?

I think scottballz is referring to Magic Hat #9.

When would you add the puree?

I would vote for 1/3rd of the purée at 5 minutes and the other two thirds in secondary.

Just FYI, Magic Hat uses apricot extract in #9. Heard a podcast interview with one of the guys there a couple of years ago.

If I use the extract when do you think a good time to add it would be?

Here we go. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/can-...er-9-a-175571/ Basically, 2-5 oz of extract at bottling.

For the extract wait till bottling and pull a small measured sample say like 6 Oz then add extract till sample is desired flavor then extrapolate the sample size to the batch size and add that amount to the beer
