Maybe just use some Citra hops to get the Mango flavor?

Add some acid malt to the mash to really bring out good fruit flavor. Carapils will help maintain body

I'm about to make a Purple Haze clone as well...I was looking into getting a 49oz (3lb) can of Raspberry Vinter's Harvest puree but I'm not sure how much to use for a 5 gal batch.

I used all 3lbs when in made my apricot. You may want to add a little something that will balance the tartness that comes with fermented fruit. Using some carapils will help maintain body. Lactose could offset some of the tart

not to hijack the thread. I brewed an American Wheat yesterday and after primary I would like to split the batch. 1 gallon or so in a secondary with raspberry puree and the rest in bottles. Anybody have a recommendation on how much puree for a gallon? Does anything need to be done before adding it to the secondary or can it go in straight from the can?

My experience :
I made a raspberry wheat (5gal) and used 1 can of raspberry puree (vintners harvest, 3 lb) in secondary. It was a DRY beer and it turned out VERY acidic. It was good, but very very tart and dry. NOT a sweet girly dessert drink by any stretch.

I bottled a simple pale ale with blueberry extract last month. I used 2 oz of extract in the bottling bucket. This beer was sorta based off of a seadog bluepaw clone. The blueberry flavor is perfect in terms of strength. I think it tastes....artificial, sort of sharp. Almost medicinal. In the future I will try using both in combination to see if it's better balanced (and because I want my blueberry beer to be blue dammit!)

1 added the 3 pound can of raspberries and when your ready to carb add a little lactos to improve body and take some of the tartness away. About 4 to 5 ounces per 5 gallons.

My malt bill was

4 lbs 2 row
4 lbs white wheat
7 oz carapils
7 oz crystal 20
7 oz acid malt

This is a recipe given to me from a professional brewery and it turned out great. This was used on very soft water as well
