Blonde ale: pale, refreshing, balanced. Already a crowd-pleaser, but add in apricot and you’ve got one of Dry Dock Brewing Co.’s most popular beers. A very light, slightly sweet malt body is the foundation, accompanied by minimal hopping and classic American yeast. The secret here is using real apricot puree, which contributes fresh apricot flavor, additional body and a bit of fruity tartness. Some apricot extract added at bottling supports the flavor and extends it. The perfect end to a summer evening, or an excellent pair for a light almond pastry. Dry Dock Brewing Company of Aurora CO is one of the hottest up and coming breweries in the US. In the 6 years that it has been open, it has racked up more than a dozen World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival medals, including Small Brewing Company of the Year. But to try one of their amazing brews you’d have to live in the tiny section of Colorado they cater to. Good thing for the rest of us Dry Dock has worked closely with Northern Brewer to develop these Pro-Series beer kits. We’ve sourced the same ingredients and kept all the recipe particulars the same, just scaled down to your homebrewery. Enjoy!

5.0 / 5.04 ReviewsSwmbo loves it!This is a very good kit. The extra cost comes from the 3lbs of apricot pur??e. But it is definitely worth it. When fresh it is smooth and the aroma is fantastic. After 6 weeks in the keg it has increasingly become more tart in taste and aroma. My wife, mother-in-law, and neighbors wives can't get enough of this stuff. If it keeps them happy I can justify the extra expense. Be aware! When you add the pur??e 2 days after fermentation starts be ready with a blowoff tube as the yeast go nuts on the pur??e.May 30, 2012Would definitely Brew AgainReally easy brew, only think I would say is longer time conditioning next time. I followed instructions and bottled accordingly but wasn;t that great. After some time just conditioning longer in the bottles wow was like a different beer,January 9, 2017Purchased
1 year agoDelicious to the last drop!I brewed this all-grain recipe back in March 2016. It was a huge hit at my Memorial Day weekend party. It was better than any commercial apricot ale I've tasted. The apricot really comes through. I will definitely make this a regular part of my spring brewing. This is one of the top kits I've brewed.March 2, 2017Summer Party Crowd PleaserI made this for my fiancé's 2015 Summer company work party and it was such a hit, I got requests to make it again this year. The whole corny keg was gone! Next year I'm going to have to make two batches. It's light and tart and even appeals to non beer drinkers.July 22, 2016
Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 14 answersI'm sitting at day 4 of primary fermentation and the krausen still has not fallen. Should I wait to pitch the purée?BEST ANSWER: I did not have that problem. When I put the puree in the brew there was a covering of the krausen but I just poured it in and resealed it. So far so good. I hope it helps!
Johncan the puree be added at the same time as the yeast?BEST ANSWER: You could but I wouldn't. I would not add purée at same time as yeast for two reasons. The first is that your yeast would have that much more sugar to digest leading to possible clogging of your airlock. Your fruit purée would also be in with all the trub giving more off flavors. I like to put adjuncts in after primary fermentation.Hi! Does the needed apricot puree and apricot extract come with this kit?BEST ANSWER: Yes, the puree and extract are included in the kit.
