- 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 / 5.05 ReviewsWill be on tap year round!Had this brew on tap at a bar in Brekenridge, and both the lady and I really enjoyed it. I did not follow the recipe to the letter, used .75oz of cascade and then added .75oz nugget just because I prefer a little bit more IBU. I was saving the last of the original for a side by side comparison, but I could not hold out long enough. A great summer, or hot afternoon beer, goes down smooth with great taste! A definite do again, with or without the additional hops.Apricot BlondeOctober 5, 2017Purchased
6 months 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, 2017Would 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
over 2 years agoSummer 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, 2016Swmbo 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, 2012
- Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 18 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: Pitch the puree, and make sure you have a big tube as an air lock in your ar boy. The puree ignites the yeast and a smaller air lock will be blown off as mine was. Luckily was in a shower where it was an easy clean up.can 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.What is the IBU for this beer?BEST ANSWER: Its low. it's also going to depend on your AA of the Cascade you get but it should be in the 13-14IBU range based on .5oz of Cascade @60mins.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.
