I'm aiming to make a Mango Session IPA because my daughter says she really likes Mango Unchained, a beer by Shindigger, a Manchester 'brewery' that hires brewery time to make its beers.

I am not aiming to clone that beer and they don't provide any info that I can find anyway. I have found the simple extract plus grains recipe below for a 6.8% mango IPA.

I'm basically going to scale this back to about 1046, use base malt and extract, maybe add some carapils/oats, use Riwaka instead of Mosaic (I don't have any Mosaic), and Liberty Bell which is the new name for the Burton Union yeast.

This will hopefully be my first kegged beer.:

Sounds a nice brew m8 😉 although mango is a flavour im not all that fussed on.  Get it brewed and get it in that keg 😃 you wont look back !
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it

The Mango Unchained is a nice beer, has mango and pineapple actually, and it's not overly mangoid. I'll try to get pineapple in mine too, somehow.

Pineapple I do like , but mango overload is somewhat.... catpissy to me.  I've never come across that commercial pint tho.

Totally appreciate I just randomly drop into conversation periodically, apologies for that. Three kids is a bit nuts! I used 'Kesar' mango puree for a wheat beer in the summer. Two 850g tins out of Tesco for £2.50 at the time.

Fired a whole tin into the fermentor along with the wort and co-fermented with Hefe and New Zealand white wine yeast. First few pints were pure mango, slightly cider like but it was pretty awesome by a few pints into the keg. Would recommend if you want to go all out mango (or you could just use less than a whole tin!).

Do the mango👍

I am sitting with a can of Drygate, Crossing the Rubicon. Mango and passion fruit “West Coast” ipa. Very nice.

Well, attention to detail and devotion to duty, I attended a Shindigger Meet the Brewer event yesterday and quizzed the brewer about Mango Unchained while drinking Mango Unchained. Great young lads they are. The beer is just pale malt with a bit of horrified wheat, 28-32 IBUs with a small 60 minute bittering charge, 4.2% ABV, and the rest of the hops are 25% at flameout and 75% dry hops, combination of Citra, Mosaic and Ekuanot. If I email him, he will happily send the recipe. However, they use mango and pineapple essences which he said I won't be able to buy. I will have to work out what to use and find a way of adding the 'fruit' somehow at bottling time, I think, and add it gradually until the amount is right.

That's probably some kind of CO2 extract. I understand the tech has improved greatly for making these essences due to vaping. Maybe have a look at those kind of suppliers and see if they are edible?

Actually, think this is probably it:

Mango and pineapple = wlp644
It’s a mango and (particularly) pineapple part-ay

Great!  Thanks mack, that looks like a good and straight forward option. Got to decide about whether to pay the delivery charge though, I got a load of ingredients delivered recently. It'll only be about £3 though I expect.

Still not brewed this and, having now tasted GHWs Tropical IPA, i think i will do as he suggested earlier in this thread and brew a beer with the WLP644 to get a mango and pineapple thing going, along with some suitable hops. Gareth's beer was a lot better than the Mango Unchained IMO. I didnt appreciate what you were saying at the time, Gareth!
