Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: US-04   
Yeast Starter: No   
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: NO   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.04   
Final Gravity: 1.006   
IBU: 26   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 6.52   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14   
Additional Fermentation: no   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 Days in Keg   
Tasting Notes: Enough beer for me, enough fruit for SWMBO   

7# American 2 row
1# Crystal 20L
1 oz Cascade (60 Minute)
3# Can Oregon Fruit Puree.
4oz bottle of apricot flavoring.

Mash with 4 gallons of water at 154 degrees for 60 minutes, stir every 15 minutes. Batch Sparge until I hit the 6 gallon mark on my boil pot.

Add SafeAle US-04 when cool.
Add 3# can of Apricot Puree at day #3, and give a good gentile stir.
Add bottle of Apricot Flavoring at bottling / Keg time.

This is a very nice blond ale with enough fruit that it kinda kicks you a bit, but after the second or 3rd drink, you appreciate it as beer too.

*** NOTE This is a recipe card from the Brew Hut in Aurora, and brewed by Dry Dock Brewing.***

I am not a fan of Fruit Beer AT ALL, but this one is back on track for the holiday season.

I think I'm going to make this my first AG brew. Is this an easy one?

about as easy as it gets.
Mashing 8 # of grain, only 1 hop addition, no decoction...no sparging magic....it's like AG with training wheels.

Let me know how you do....heck get us some pictures.

I will most definately. It won't be for a while (lack of storage and already have a queue of extract brews in mind), but I have subscribed to this thread and will definitely get you some pictures. This recipe sounds delicious, by the way. I might even bump this up in the queue!

How well do you think this recipe would take to using a blueberry puree instead of an Apricot?

DO IT! Haha, that's what I was going to do, but I still haven't gone all-grain.

Im looking at making an apricot beer....someone said this might be a lil strong on the fruit side....to knock it back a notch and only using either the puree OR the extract which one would have the best flavor for subtleness?
