If you add some of your extract later in the boil, you should get a little closer on the color. I would have thought that the proportion of wheat extract would been higher, but if it tastes right, bully on.

*budbo, I'll have to try that next time, i actually found this recipe on here, but my LHBS was out of some of the original stuff in the recipe so i when with what they had.(ie: Hallertau instead of Tetneng, and the crystal were a suggestion by the owner.)

*kappclark, I'm a big fan of VT and pretty much all of their breweries. I'm actually planing on entering this HB contest in Bennington, VT this OCT.

Just a thought, When I do clones I usually check the web sites to see if they list what they actually use, then modify the recipies I find here to match the specs they give. I mention that because I've been considering doing a #9 clone myself, and since 3oz of apricot worked well for you my recipe is now ready to try

yeah the 3oz was perfect, it has that apricot aroma, but not a strong taste
