I have a wheat beer just finishing up fermentation and a friend's wife asked if I could make her some apricot wheat. She's not a beer drinker (wine snob) and she doesn't drink much beer but she heard wanted to try something in a gateway beer so 1 gal will be enough and coincidentally, I just picked up a couple 1 gal jugs.
But, apricot puree and fresh apricots are both hard to find but I can get dried apricots easily. I was wondering about adding dried apricots to a cup of water and bringing it all to a boil to sterilize and then letting them soak a bit to take in some water. Then, I was thinking into the food processor and make a puree to add. What do you think? Would this work? How much? I read 3 lbs for 5 gallons so I'm thinking that a 1/2 lb would probably do it assuming that it's more concentrated being dried.
Please give me your thoughts.
