Commercially sterilized and containing no preservatives, you can add this puree directly to your primary or secondary fermenter to flavor beer, mead, or wines.

4.6 / 5.010 ReviewsGreat for fruit flavoringI used this for my first fruit brew using the Liberty Cream Ale as a base. I added it to the secondary and thought that it gave a really crisp apricot flavor. Be aware that it'll add a lot of sediment to your secondary so the beer may be a bit cloudier than expected. _x000D_ For really pronounced apricot flavor, pair this with the apricot extract but decrease the amount added based on your affinity for strong flavoring in your beer._x000D_ I'll be using this again soon, adding it to a wheat beer.March 27, 2013Great ProductThis is a great product. Even if you can get the freshest apricots, using a pasteurized puree like this can be better because you don't have to pit the apricots, sanitize them, puree them, etc. It's ready to go and I find the fruit flavors to be more concentrated than fresh fruit because of how much it's broken. The only con's are it's price. It's significantly more expensive than fresh fruit in seasonJanuary 12, 2014This made an amazing wineI used this to make an apricot wine that turned out amazing. Can hardly wait for it to age a few months.March 7, 2017Purchased
1 year agoapricot wheat beerUsed one can of this for a apricot wheat beer. Loved it! have made this type of beer twice before. Wish it was a little cheaper but it is easier.December 17, 2012Great for Wheat AlesI used this in the secondary with the Aussie Light Ale kit. It came out excellant. A lighter ale with a slight fruit kick. A great summer recipe. Using fruit puree is somewhat expensive and adds an extra step but it is worthwhile!March 23, 2013Great FlavorThis is great for adding to the secondary to give your beer a fruit taste. You can use this in almost any style beer. _x000D__x000D_I used it in a DFH aprihop clone along with the Apricot extract. _x000D__x000D_It definitely adds a little cost to the brew but is worth it. The puree is a more natural taste then the extract so I would use more puree next time and less extract to try to achieve a similar flavor.April 10, 2013Why add anything but the best?These fruit purees are exceptional. Just pop then open and go straight into the secondary. The smell was excellent and the finished product (apricot IPA) was delicious. The fruit hint is evident but not overpowering. Why use any other method to do fruit flavoring?May 21, 2013Boundry Waters Apricot WheatI used one can of the apricot puree in the secondary. It smells great but does add some cloudiness. At bottling I added the apricot extract to taste, 2 oz. Came out very tasty. Pretty easy and well liked by even the non beer drinkers.August 9, 2013Sure beats extractAdd it to the secondary, then gently stir it up. Repeat twice a week for two weeks, to expose all the fruit to the yeast. Then let sit another 2 weeks.March 7, 2014apricot winecould not drink the wine too much solids in pureeJuly 30, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesI wonder if it needed to have been racked a few more times, to leave behind all the fruit pulp. Additional rackings, additional time, and proper use of clarifiers should be enough to clear out a fruit wine nicely; it should not still have fruit pulp in it by the time the wine is bottled up. -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesNovember 2, 2016Midwest Supplies

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 6 answersCan this product be eaten as is or mixed with yoghurt or ice cream, for example?BEST ANSWER: I don't see any reason why not. I really like apricot juice but it is really hard to find plain juice that isn't mixed with lots of sugar or other (sweeter) fruit juices. So (when I'm not using it to make apricot wine) I mix it 2 to 1 with water and drink it as apricot juice. According to the ingredients, this is just apricot puree and nothing else.
