Sorry I can't help, but I was just thinking of this exact same idea earlier today when I saw mango marmalade at the grocery store. Would also like to see if anyone has other ideas, I might try out the mango marmalade idea next time I feel like a little experimentation.

Garrett, I just got done with a mango wheat, turned out great! I brewed a Belgian Wheat and after primary fermentation was done I split it into two seperate carboys with about 2.5 gallons in each. In one I put a raspberry puree then added some raspberry extract before bottling. In the other I added 2 12oz bottles of Mango Juice. I used the "naked" brand since they add no sugars or preservatives. They both turned out fantastic although the mango could probably use a little more flavoring...

Which naked juice did you use? I noticed the only have a mango orange juice that contains banana purée in it.

Ok taking a complete shot in the dark here, but how about a recipe like this:

6lbs Wheat LME
.5oz Citra Hops 60min.
wyeast 1010 american wheat

ferment and rack to secondary with 6-7lbs of Mango chunks.
also maybe 1-2lbs of kiwi chucks as well for added flavor.

Brewpal says i would get an OG of 1.041 and FG of 1.010 leaving me with a 4.1% ABV, which i feel would be perfect for this style. I have heard a lot about citra hops adding mango essence to the beer which sounds like it would be a great bittering hop.

what do you guys think?

You will get additional fermentable sugar from the fruit, yielding a higher abv.

Figuring how much fermentables is tricky. If you're trying to keep it near "session" abv, i.e., ~4%, maybe a pound less LME is about right, but to be honest, I'm guessing. Best bet would be to look up the average sugar content of those fruits and work out how much sugar to "add" in BeerSmith (or whatever) to get a good ballpark number.

OK, I decided to do a bit of research since I've been thinking od doing a mango beer this spring myself. This site says raw mangoes have 24g sugar per 165g serving. That's 14.5% sugar. As I understand it, fruits in general contain sucrose, fructose and glucose, with few other sugars meaning you can consider it all fermentable (someone correct me on that or point me to a source with specific breakdowns for various fruits). So 7 lbs of mangoes will yield 1 lb of fermentable sugar.

Raw kiwi has 16g sugar per 177g serving = 9% sugar. Meaning 2lbs kiwi will add 0.18 lbs sugar.

So going in BeerSmith and adding 6lbs wheat LME and 1.18 lbs sucrose (with WY1010) I get an est ABV of 5.62%. Decrease the LME to 5lbs and we get 4.85%; might be okay, but for a true light session beer, maybe bring it down to 4 lbs and you get 4.08%. Of course these are only estimates and getting real numbers without sending your beer to a lab is pretty much impossible.

Be aware that this beer is getting 23% of it's fermentables from fruit. Which basically means it's 23% wine. Nothing wrong with that, but just wondering if some off-flavors might need to age-out like some wines... only one way to find out!
