Default Mango/peach Cider.....

Hey all. I have many beer experiments i have done. I have never messed with cider tho. Well once and i didnt carbonate it and i didnt like it.

The grocery store by my house has pure mango and pure peach juice. i was thnking of doing a 5 gallon batch and carbonating it...... no apple juice.

Sound decent or nah?

Who know's how it will turn out. It won't taste like mango juice with a kick though... it'll ferment dry. I would ferment a base apple cider, stabilize (ie kill of the yeast using k-meta and sorbate) and then experiment with a small portion of cider to see how backsweetening with mango juice works.

I was wondering about this same issue when I saw mango juice in costco. I decided to make a traditional mead, stabilize and then try to backsweeten with mango juice and honey.
