Apricot Ale Homebrew (2012 Batch #1)

School’s finally out, and my brewing equipment will be neglected no more. My latest brew is an Apricot Ale, and it’s my first homebrew in quite some time. Here’s the recipe for those interested:

Grains:
7 Pounds Light Malt Extract
1 Pound American Crystal 60

Hops:
1 Ounce Amarillo (9.2%) @60min
1 Ounce Amarillo (9.2%) @30min
1 Ounce Columbus (13.2%) @ 10min
Dry hop with 1 Ounce Cascade (5.5%) in Secondary (7 Days)

Other:
White Labs California Ale V Yeast
1 Whirfloc Tablet @5min
4 Ounces Apricot Extract at Bottling
5 Ounces of Priming Sugar at Bottling

Original gravity reading: 1.056

It’s similar to a recipe I made a couple years ago, and it’s a bit like a hoppier and stronger version of Magic Hat #9. Here are a few pics:
