Just an FYI, it sounds like you are live on Oahu.

I live on Oahu as well and don't have any issues finding Orval. There are only a handful of liquor stores that have good beer here, but most do carry Orval.

Back on topic: Will definitely be trying this in the coming months when the mangos get out of control.

I did find some the other day at Times near Dixie Grill. I live in Waianae, so there and Ewa Pantry are about the only places I go to get decent beer.

I am getting ready to add the Mangoes!

Well, here it is! Looked and smelled great! Just worried about the mangoes stuck to the the upper part of the carboy. I can't get them to fall either.

I am going to add more cheap vodka to blow-off bottle before I leave, I have had pretty crazy secondaries before when adding fruit and didn't want a mess.

The LHBS was closed for a week while the owner was on vacation, so I couldn't get any yeast to add to the secondary. I am currently washing the yeast from the primary, to add back to the secondary and see how that goes.

They may float for the entire time, mine have been floating for months.

Did you get a pellicle on top of the mango, mine is just sort of discolored on top...

I didn't mean the mango chunks that are floating, I expected that; I mean the few pieces of mango that stuck on the glass near the top of the carboy that are not on beer.

Most of the mango is floating now. It was frozen when added, so I expected a lot to sink and then slowly rise to the top. My concerns were just the 4 or 5 pieces that managed to get stuck on the side out of the beer. I am just worried if the 1 or 2 pieces will eventually rot and fall into the beer.

This looks amazing, i've recently had my eyes open to the world of all things sour and love them(so does the wife). Starting a pLambic this weekend actually. This is going to be the sour i start 6 months into the pLambic to keep a pipeline of sorts going. Orval is easy to get here, just curious how fresh your dregs were?

Inspired by this recipe I have a gallon of it bubbling away just now. Only a gallon sadly - I know I'm going to want more but I don't have space for 5gallons sitting around for 6 months! Made a few changes and used Nelson Sauvin hops in the boil. Added mango and Orval dregs last night and will dry hop again with Nelsons before bottling. Oh, and I also bumped up the grain so I'm looking at 9%ABV without accounting for mangos or sugar or Brett bringing the FG down. Figured if I'm only going to get a few bottles out of this they're damn well going to be ones to savour.
