So after converting the Recipe to AG, I brewed this with Columbus and Cascades
Added some dried apricots to the last 5 min, and used 2 oz of flavoring at kegging, I think I got it nailed in color and taste.

So altogether, how many ounces/lbs of dried apricots would I need to add to the secondary?

Could I do it in the secondary?

I tried a very different recipe for this last night and I am amazed at how different the 2 "clone" recipes are. In the Kettle after the cold break, during racking to Primary, I noted the color was pretty spot on.

The Recipe I used was:

9.5lbs Marris Otter
1.75lbs Briess 2 Row American
.25lbs Crystal 60

Mash @ 153* for 60
Sparge @ 178*

90 min boil

Warrior - .25oz @ 60
Tettnang - .60oz @ 30
Cascade - .25oz @ 2

Interesting, the difference between them.

Curious--where'd you get your apricot flavoring from?

Expect a second fermentation due to the Apricot if you use Puree. I dumped in 3lbs of the Puree and the secondary has started to bubble away. I have no idea when I will be able to bottle this stuff! It may be weeks before the fermentables are all fermented out, again.

Anybody try this with an Oregon Fruit Puree, rather than apricot flavoring?
I'm just wondering how much puree it would need.

This weekend we have plans to try the recipe that has the 3lbs puree. But we are going to try 2 lbs of raspberry instead, little less fruit flavor, and raspberries instead. Sound tasty? How bout adding some honey in there too? I haven't done fruit or honey yet, so maybe I dont want to try them both at the same time...
