Mango Brandy

Post by Biker Mark » Mon Apr 23, 2018 1:44 pm

I was shopping at my local Costco a while ago, and discovered Langers Mango Nectar.
So I checked for preservatives, none, good!
Did a little sugar math and this is the recipe I have been doing that the ladies love so much.

This recipe is scaled for a 6.5 gallon Ale Pale.

4 Gallons, (+ 1 gallon for the thumper opt.) of Langers Mango Nectar from Costco
3 pounds of white sugar
1 pk Premier Cuvee Yeast
Crushed oyster shell
Multi and B vitamins

1. Melt the sugar in 1 gallon of water. Heating until sugar water is clear.
2. Add Sugar water and 4 gallons on Mango Nectar to the Ale Pale
3. Add 1 TBSP of DAP and 2 TBSP Crushed oyster shell
4. Crush a Multi and B complex vitamin and add to mix
5. Aerate and top up Ale Pale with water, adjusting temp to reach a goal of 75 degrees F.
6. Pitch yeast and air lock

It works off in about a week and can racked directly to the boiler.

I use a pot still with 2 thumpers @ 2.5 gallons each,
Put a half gallon on fresh Mango Nectar in your thump keg when you distill if you have one.
It turns out great without adding the extra nectar to the thumper also.
