Thanks for posting your results! Out of curiosity, did you take a gravity reading before/after adding fruit? (To get an accurate ABV?) Not that it really matters though, just wonderin'.

i do have an additional question......

i added the beer into secondary with the apricot puree.  i put the apricot puree in first and then racked the beer onto it.  it looked like it was mixing up nicely....

what the heck is all the stuff on the bottom now???





it does taste awesome....  here it is next to my esb with american hops....



it's not a clear beer, that's for sure.

How do you mark your bottles from batch to batch?  Just curious.

Stay dry!

i won't do anything to this batch.  i only have a few bottles of coffee porter left and they have an @ on them.  when i bottle the esb this weekend, i'll probably write an 'e' on the bottles.  real haphazard.  thanks!
