^^^^LMAO
I followed this recipe except I used 6# of honey, NO sugar. And only 4 cans of the mango pulp in a 4 gallon batch. The SG was around 1.080 and turned out to 11%. I lost 1 gallon due to the pulp on the bottom. Now it's been aging for 3 months in a 3 gallon carboy.

I tried throwing together this recipe tonight, but I'm a bit concerned because of my OG reading of 1.160. I did a 6 gallon batch, so I multiplied everything in the 1 gallon batch by 6. It looked like this:

8 cups water 3 gallons
30 oz can of Mango Pulp* 6 cans
6 cups white*sugar 36 cups
1.5 tsp acid blend 9 tsp
½ tsp pectic enzyme 3 tsp
1 tsp yeast nutrient 6 tsp
1/4 tsp wine tannin 1.5 tsp
1 packet Red Star “Champagne” yeast

I was about a half cup of sugar short, so I added 1/3 cup of clover honey. Is this what threw the reading off, or am I missing something?

Thanks for the help.

You're not going to get a correct OG reading because the pulp is in solution. The pulp will help hold the hydrometer higher than it otherwise would be. Don't be concerned. You're still on track for a good result. The honey at 1/3 cup probably didn't add much appreciable sugar to the mix at all, hardy a few points. Relax, you'll have a killer Mango Wine soon enough.

What has everyone topped off with after racking this stuff? I'm about to start my first batch and would imagine there will be a large amount of sediment right before the first racking. Probably just top off with water?

I started out with 4 gallons in a primary bucket. I then racked into a 5 gallon glass carboy for 2nd fermentation, I didn't disturb it as I didn't want air to re enter and fill the co2 head space. Once it was clear I racked it to a 3 gallon class carboy for aging, it was filled up to the bottom of neck. I lost about 1 gallon from pulp and racking, and i used nothing to top up.

It's now been just over 3 weeks since I've made my 6 gallon batch. I ended up using Lalvin ec-1118 champagne yeast instead of the Red Star. Fermentation was vigorous for the first two weeks, but has now almost completely stopped. Is this normal? This is what my batch is looking like:




Thanks for your help.

Has anyone tried this with mango nectar? I recently bought some from Costco thinking if it doesn't taste good I'll just ferment it! Well it is waaay too sweet to drink so it's wine time.

If no one has, I might just use the regular recipe then top off with this.
