Thread: Mango addition

    Mango addition


    Howdy All,

    I've brewed a 32l APA for a upcoming party but Mangos have just come into season here so I am toying with the idea of bottling half the batch and then adding some mango to the other half for a couple days then bottling the rest.

    I'm a little concerned about O2 coming in as I bottle the first half. But it will be all gone in a pretty short space of time. Is this a dumb idea?

    if your careful you should still have the c02 layer on top, also the Mango addition will trigger further fermentation which should scrub any 02. Seeing as you will be drinking it all at the party I don't think you will really have an issue with oxygenation in such a short time.

    I have not made any beers with fruit additions - thou sounds like something I'd like to try one day.
    I saw a video on youtube while back .. think called Mango IPA.. Maybe you can lift some tips from there.
    See if I can find it for you.

    It's this one I was talking about:

    Like alex i have 0 exp with fruit additions. The only 2c i have is. If your really want to do it give it a go. Dont let us stop you. And check out quantities very carefully. The internet will be your friend here. Be very careful not to overdo it. O and how are you going to ensure you dont get an infection? Microwave for 10s?

    Great. I think I'll go for it. but might just do 10l. That way if I mess it up I still have plenty in reserve and I also don't think I'll want too much left over.
    I was going to puree the mango then pasteurize for 10 Mins ~ 80 deg.

    The going rate is about 1.5Kg puree to 25L of beer

    Thanks for the assistance
    So I did around 700 ml of puree for 14 odd liters (a bit under the going rate) and added a small dry hop addition while I was at it. Smelt devine at bottling stage. just waiting for it to carb properly now. Weren't the best mangos as it was early in the season, bit now there are these mangos that have a pineapple taste to them which are in their prime. So a Mango IPA is next on the cards if this one turns out okay.
