So, this is my first wine... It started at about 1.095 SG and finished around .999 SG. It was nice and clear in the primary. My problem is that when I transferred I got some of the fruit lees with it (not a big deal I think), but I have a huge amount of head space over the wine...is this going to make it go bad? Should I do anything to correct it? Thanks!

Made a double batch of this Saturday, split it between 2 one-gallon jugs and attached airlocks. Fermentation started very quickly and is getting more vigorous, but 4 days later it seems that most of the pulp has risen to the top and keeps getting pushed up into my airlocks. Have had to clean and reattach the airlock 5 times in the past couple of days. Is this normal? Did I do something wrong? I shake it down but it just gets pushed up again.

Hrm, weird - we've never had that happen! Not sure why the pulp would rise instead of sink - what brand did you use? Maybe it's a different texture or something? We've only ever used the Swad Kesar stuff.

The pulp settled in the bottom for my batch.

This is not unusual in my experince. I have not done this recipe but plan to do a variant. A lot of my melomels have the fruit rise to the top and sometime out of the air lock. The only way to avoid this is to do your primary ferment in a bucket, leave plenty of head space in your carboy, or use a blow-off tube. I perfer to use a bucket to do my primary. This allows for easy stirring, SG checks, and avoiding the problem you are having.

Cheers

Costco is having a sale on the langers mango nectar and I am thinking about trying to make the wine with this. Can anybody see an issue with that? ($2 off, not sure what it will end up being but should be pretty inexpensive)

I made a small batch of this a few months ago, then made a batch of Skeeter Pee... ended up blending them 2:1 (6 gallons of Skeeter Pee to 3 gallons of mango wine), with a little sweetening I have 9 gallons of this amazing mango lemonade! And at ~11% abv, it's easy to get in trouble with. :-)

Got a batch of this aging now... at it's last racking I gave it a taste, it's crazy good. It stalled out at 1.010, right where I like it. Might bottle it in a few months if I can stand it that long!

Would this wine benefit from the addition of some saffron after the last racking?
Be an interesting bonus for color restoration, additional aromas and even add a nice bitterness or a tannin like mouthfeel.
Mmmm that does sound good.
