I did a batch with Vintners Apricot Puree, a single 49 oz. can for a 5 gallon batch added to secondary.  The beer is great but just not what I'm trying reproduce.  The apricot flavor is much more subtle and not as pronounced as what I'm looking for.  I've been looking for frozen apricots in the store with no luck, I may try to use canned apricots and see how that works out.  I may have to hijack a delivery truck to Otto's to get a supply of what ever they are using.

I found this at Walmart of all places, an all natural apricot preserve.  It lists the ingredients as: Apricots, Corn Syrup, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Apricot Puree Concentrate, Sugar, Pectin, Citric Acid.  Does anyone see a reason I couldn't try adding this to secondary?

quick google search returns...

not sure it's exactly what you want but it's worth a try

That was the closest thing I saw when I looked, pancake syrup basically.  I'll probably try something like this for my next batch and see how it turns out.  The real nice thing about the alcohol based one is that you can a little to the keg and increase it until you get your desired taste.  I guess I was hoping that someone had already tried the syrup and had some feedback.

I've been working on brewing an Apricot Wheat along the lines of a Pyramid or the one from Ottos is State College, PA.  I've tried with pureed frozen apricots and the alcohol based flavoring that comes in the small 4 oz. bottles.  Both of these have come out fine but not exactly what I'm looking for.  I was told on a tour of Ottos that they use an apricot flavored syrup that they add to secondary(rumor is Pyramid does the same) but they wouldn't go into much more detail.  I've done some googling looking for something like a flavored high fructose corn syrup but have come up short.  Does anyone have an idea on what type of syrup they may be using and where to buy it?
