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

Fruit Beer


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.
