Have had two very very early tasters of this.My lad had one this afternoon as well. Very nice indeed and very much like the experimental hops.
Will be brewing with those again and am going to order some more up soon.
Now,does the mango come through!,not sure really but an overall fruity pint

It is a really nice beer.As i say, not sure if the mango is showing that much but along with the Geterbrewed experimental hops it is a nice drop

This has gone down very well with those to whom i have given some bottles.
One to re brew for next summer in a larger quantity.
Have already ordered up more of the experimental hops from Geterbrewed

Hi Chub,
This is my next brew so I just wanted to ask if you thought the mango taste was enough or would you up it next time.
I'm planning a 12l BiaB using a combination of Amarillo, Simcoe and Mosaic hops and plan to use maybe 900g of frozen mango chunks, any thoughts please ?
Cheers.

Good question.Think i would possibly up it a tad.It was very pleasant and those i gave away went down well,all said it was very refreshing and fella along the road to me who also brews said he could tell that mango was in it!..
Alas my taste buds are not great at telling what is what with hops etc. Yes i can detect citrus etc,but am lost when people say ahhhhhhh that has woody and pine notes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Another guy on here also brewed one and he reckoned it was really good.

Started this brew yesterday, swapped the mosaic hops for Ekuanot and just bought 1kg of frozen mangos.
One question, I believe it's best to add the fruit while the fermentation is still active but died down, after about 5 days which is fine, but should I leave the fruit in until the end or pull it out a few days before bottling ??
Cheers.........

All i can say is that i left the mango in for 5 days(added day 5) before racking.

Had my first bottle last night, only 2 weeks since bottling so still quite green but................................IT'S LOVELY

Nice mango taste but not too overpowering or too sweet, this is definitely a high class brew.
