I am dying to see how mine is doing. The wife and kids are staying with family, so I can't get any pictures on how its doing. Its been sitting since March while I am in Afghanistan. I get back around October. I didn't get a chance to add any Brett has the LHBS doesn't carry it, you have to special order it and I ran out of time.

I had a wee taste of mine today. As it's only a gallon primary fermentation was over in 3 days. The orval dregs and mango have been in there 3 days now too - nothing sour but man is the mango and nelson sauvin going together well or what! I'll see how it goes - I think I may bottle it after only a month or so (in orval bottles so that the brett can keep going without bombs). If that seems to go well then I may go for a bigger batch of it.

After 7 months, doesn't look too bad! Hope to keg tomorrow, or Tuesday. Can't wait to smell, and see how it turned out.

Did I miss it? I didn't see the yeast used for primary.

I used WLP 550. Mine did quite turn out as I had hoped. Too much mango floaties in each pour, and too much alcohol taste. Otherwise would have been great. Nice, golden clear color except for mango pieces.

Not sure if you mentioned this, but how much did you carb it? i'm finally ready to bottle tonight/this weekend and didn't see that info in your original post. I'm thinking of going with 3.5 volumes. Kind of worried about bottle bombs to be honest. Am I making a noob mistake here?

Just wanted to comment on my version of this. I brewed it in 3/2012, bottled in 8/2012. Used the recipe above except about 5 lbs of mango added the 3 dregs of Orval and a month later added the dregs of a Jolly Pumpkin.

That said mine came out great. Not much mango flavor so use 7+ lbs if you want that. Mine has a hint of DMS from the recommended 60 min boil, I would do 90 if I did it again. Nice brett flavor that isn't over the top. Mine is really mouth puckering SOUR after added the JP dregs which I hear are really virulent. This was a good thing to me and I would make a similar version again at some point with more mango and a longer boil time.
