I am planning on chunking up about 3 lbs of fresh mangos and add them to the secondary when I dry hop.

The recipe calls for no aroma hops

This is a five gallon batch and am trying to do something new. I thought this sounded like it had a good ring. I am getting bored wit the traditional kits, I need to expand my brewing taste buds.

This is an extract kit elf rom Austin homebrew. It's the AHS Anniversary IPA. I think I'm going to use 2.5 lbs of mangos from the frozen food section and add the. When I dry hop for 4 days. It takes

1lbs crystal 75L malt
7lbs of extra pale extract
1lb of extra light DME
1oz summit bittering hop
1oz zythos hops flavoring
Then I'm gonna dry hop with 1 oz citra, 1 oz cascade and 1 oz palisade with 2.5 lbs of mangos. Pry for 4 dAys.


Not sure how it'll turn out. What do you all thin?

Let me just say I've never added fruit to beer. I know many people do. It does seem like an interesting idea.

However, adding mangoes to your beer will add sugar and will probably lead to a rejuvenated fermentation. If you add the citra and cascade when you add the mangoes, you will lose a lot of the benefits of the these hops.

If you really want to use the mangoes, add them, let the yeast work for a couple days, rack into a secondary, then add the citra and cascade for a week. Be aware, you will not get any sweetness from the mangoes because the yeast will eat the sugars.

However, if you want just the sweet mango aroma, then just dry hop with galaxy hops and maybe some citra too. I find that galaxy really gives my IPAsa a nice mango aroma. Don't use the mangoes at all.

As I said, I've never used fruit in my beer, so I'd stick with just using the galaxy hops. Either way, you'll probably get a tasty brew.

Interestingly enough I've just gotten done making two completely different beers, but one used galaxy for dry hopping, and the other experimented with fresh fruit.

I made a blonde ale and used 6lbs of home grown peaches that were frozen. It had a really strong second fermentation, and the flavors were subtle. Fresh fruit adds no extra sweet flavor, more some tartness and slight fruit aroma and taste. I don't know how noticeable 2lbs of mango would be in a hop heavy beer...

That being said the pale ale I made and dry hopped with galaxy had an extremely noticeable mango aroma and tropical fruit taste!

Maybe do both???
