+1 to Dry Dock's Apricot Ale.  I'm not a big fan of fruit beers, but Dry Dock's Apricot Ale is by far the best I've had!  I've never brewed this, but a buddy of mine has and got the exact (or real similar recipe) as yours directly from the guys at the Brew Hut/ Dry Dock.  If I were to do an Apricot beer, this would be exactly how I would do it.

btrammel:
Very interesting.  That recipe seems very straightforward to me but I'm still pretty new at brewing.  I will be keeping all of this in mind during brew day and will keep this string updated with results!

quattlebaum:
You would be amazed at what "simple" can do for your beers. Keep it simple.
