Posted in thread: Has anyone brewed with mango? on 05-05-2012 at 11:41 AM
I made a mango pale ale with 2 bags of frozen mango chunks in secondary. Came out good, but
really dry. I didn't get a lot of "mango" taste, just a hint. You could smell it though. If you

Anybody else brew a Smorgasporter? I wait until I have enough leftover stuff from other brews

You pitched another yeast after only 24 hours without taking a gravity reading? Good god man;

Hey all,I've been brewing long enough to think I shouldn't be making stupid mistakes, but I
