comment When should I add apricot puree to a Belgian beer?
@mdma I misunderstood your original statement - I thought you were saying I'd risk more aroma loss with a fruit addition in secondary as opposed to late primary.

comment When should I add apricot puree to a Belgian beer?
Are you saying I'd be risking losing some of the apricot aroma if I added it to the secondary? I'd also considered adding some of the top layer live yeast from the cake in primary to the secondary to handle the new sugars. My reasoning for going to secondary was that I'm using a PET bottle for primary and didn't want to risk oxygen contamination (full fermentation is going to be 6+ weeks I think) and I didn't want it sitting on top of dead yeast and other undesirables in the trub that long.
