Homebrew: Diagnosis Mango

Submitted by DM on Sat, 31/03/2018 - 15:46

There is a long list of ingredients on my list of Things You Can't Buy In Cumbria - one of them is mango pulp (other things include peanut milkshake, decent lime pickle, date molasses, grape soda or cheap tahini and coconut oil).   When I was down in the midlands I picked up a big can of the stuff as mango IPAs seemed to be all the rage a couple of years ago & I wanted to try making one.

Mash - 1 hour 25 mins starting at 68ºC & falling to 63ºC at the end.

2.5Kg pale ale malt

Homebrew: The Wizard of Agnesi

I already brewed a Belgian brown ale & called it The Witch of Agnesi after a mathematical description of a particular curve.   This is a similar brown ale brewed with Belgian ale yeast, so I called it The Wizard of Agnesi.   This is a partigyle beer where two beers were made from one batch of wort.

Mash - 1 hour 20 mins starting at 69ºC and allowed to fall to 62ºC.   

3.5 Kg pale malt

400g crystal 150 malt

100g chocolate malt

1 teaspoon MgSO4
