Half Wheat/Half Apricot Wheat
This is a more potent wheat than normal, NOT watered down at all. I made 3 six packs as a straight wheat, and 5 six packs as an Apricot Ale. Both the wheat and the apricot turned out very flavorful. I won't change this recipe one bit!

5/6/00 Bottled. At bottling I bottled 3 six packs of straight
wheat, then I added 4.0 ounces of apricot extract bought from
my beer ingredient supplier.
|Carbonation:||2.9 volumes||Corn Sugar: 4.99 oz. for 4.5 gallons @ 70°F|
|Tasting:||At 6.0% alcohol, this will be the strongest tasting wheat you've probably ever had! But it will also be the best tasting. I've been enjoying the straight wheat with a lemon wedge after cutting the grass, which is great at quenching your thirst. Then I'll have the apricot wheat for a second, as dessert. I won't be changing a thing for this style beer.|
