Beer Style: Fruit Beer (20A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

Fruit Beer

Description:

I recently attempted to clone Pyramid Apricot Ale.

I just sampled my first bottle. I was disappointed at the relative lack of apricot character. By the way, I used the 'standard' apricot essence that I bought from HopTech but is readily available from a number of different vendors.

I tried a side by side comparison with a bottle of Pyramid and noted that the commercial ale had a more pronounced apricot character. Now, I am not looking to make apricot nectar, but I would have hoped for more apricot flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 4 lbs. Alexander wheat extract
  • 1.4 lbs. Alexander wheat kicker
  • 4 oz. malto-dextrin
  • 14 IBU domestic Hallertauer (60 minute boil)
  • Wyeast # 1056 liquid yeast
  • 3/4 cup corn sugar
  • 4 oz. apricot essence added to bottling bucket
