This beer really got good after 6 months in the bottle.

Here's what Denny Conn had to say about it

"Hi Jim,
Sorry to take so long getting back to ya...it's been weird here...

Let me just say...FREAKIN' FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!! Don't know what I can say about the mango strong that hasn't been said already. A totally delicious beer, perfectly balanced. Sour up front, but the the mango kicks in mid palate. A throughly enjoyable experience.

Thanks so much for thinking of me when you sent them up. The mango strong was a real inspiration for me to try something crazy one of these days. When I do, you'll be sure you get some!

------------->Denny"

So what, you sent Denny a bottle?
That's pretty cool. Get some feedback on it, and positive feedback at that.


I'll shoot you my address in a PM.:D

I'm going to do my best to make a half batch of this using 2-row and some other yeast; probably Kolsch, because I have it on hand.

Wouldn't any sourness overpower delicate yeast flavors put off by a specialty yeast? Correct me if I'm wrong =)

Natas 12-03-2008 03:07 PM

Who's this Denny character you speak of?
Anyway, I can vouche for this one as well.
The mango plays well with the tartness of the beer. a very refreshing brew.
highyl recommended

Denny is 2nd from left, natas is in the middle I believe

I do believe natas is President of the club Denny is in, and he cultured and stored the 2450 that wyeast got their sample from

Of course he still owes me a beer so maybe I should flame him;) He gave the beer I sent to Denny

It should be good,,,It just takes about 1 year to get really ggod

I went a little off of your method unfortunately. I used the wyeast lambic blend instead of the Orval dregs which I'm sure will make it very different. I also let it sit in primary for too long so the gravity when adding the brett was down below 1.006.

I plan on brewing up a gallon of some generic 1.030 wort and mashing around 160ish to give the brett some maltotriose to eat up. Either way I think a mango lambic is going to be interesting.

Would adding maltodextrin be a better option than mashing high to give the brett more food?

niquejim 12-24-2008 12:19 AM

I've never used maltodextrin so I can't help you there, but the mango will add quite a bit of sugar for it to eat.
