Update: Don't use pureed canned apricots unless you've got a way to get them out of the beer!!!
They never settled out and when I bottled, each bottle got a generous amount of apricot "floaties". I didn't worry too much because I figured they'd settle out in the bottles. But, it seems that the little apricot pieces are great nucleation points for CO2. Everyone immediately foamed over upon opening. There was only 1/3 of the beer left in the bottle by the time the foaming was done.
I don't think it was bacterial or anything because the taste is nice and I bottled a bunch of other beer that same day and they are perfect.
If you want to make apricot volcanoes, go for it but next time I'm gonna "juice" them first and get out as much pulp as I can.
