Notes

Dry hop for three days.

Use all three liters of the apricot after fermentation and three day dry hop is complete.

Rouse both the dry hop and the Apricot after one day of adding fruit.

If apricot is present then crash, if not, add more apricot...one liter at a time.

Crash after flavor is present.
