I just pitched my rehydrqated Notty into 5.5 gallons of this. I used pellets for the first 3 hop additions and used 0.1 Lb of my own cascade hops for the final hop addition. Hope all turns out well. I'll let you all know in a month or so! Thanks

Man...I brewed this about 8 weeks ago and it was my first AG. (BIAB method) I thought I must have screwed it up because it had this sharp aftertaste...almost like plastic. I got nervous as I dunk sparged in my bottling bucket(safe I checked). Just opened one that has been in the fridge for a week and the splastic taste is gone and drinking beautifully. Well done Biermuncher.

Another 'thumbs up' for this recipe, not that one is needed. Neighbors, friends and I killed a 5g keg of this in exactly two weeks. I think that's a record with my brewery. Note to self: never brew less than 10 gallons of this.

Thanks for the recipe. Where do I give all the thumbs up, 5 stars, and a bag of chocolates??? Cheers...

Thanks for the recipe, I brewed this up a couple weeks ago and was just waiting for an open keg to put it in. Tastes great, however I was a little shocked to see my FG hit 1.002! Needless to say this is very light, not complaining, just more alcohol than expected

I'm enjoying a few bottles of this right now. This was my first 5 gallon all grain brew (couple of one gallon all grain brews under my belt). Tastes really nice.

Thanks for the recipe BierMuncher.

Sure have. Turns out wonderful. 10 primary, 6 day in Secondary for me. Good Aroma and nice mango aftertaste. Used 4 lbs of fresh diced mangos.

I'm brewing this in the morning. If it turns out as good as everybody else's has, I'm gonna want to do a bigger batch next time. Here's my dilemma. I have a keggle to boil in, and my fermenter will hold 17-18 gallons. How would I scale this up to do a more concentrated batch then dilute it in the fermenter to get a full 15 gallons? Any suggestions?

I think my scale F'd me on this one. Anyone know how much space the roughly 17 lbs of grain for this recipe takes up? I had it in 1 and a half 5 gallon buckets. Actually a full bottling bucket, 6 gallons?, an half a 5 gallon bucket. I'm at 17 brix, and not half way through the boil. Stupid scale! No idea how much grain is in this damn beer! I thought the mash tun looked pretty full.
