7-002: Mango Chili Mead

Oh yes! I took a break from the dissertation to brew another batch of sweet, sweet mead. I decided that I needed to try to make a mango mead with a smokey New Mexico chili pepper finish. I don't know why, that just sounds good to me. Mangos are tricky with mead, I hear. I have never before tried to brew with it. I can't wait to see how it turns out. Here's the recipe:


  • Flesh of 12 Mangoes; pureed
  • 1 gal clover honey
  • Juice of 2 medium lemons
  • 4 gal water
  • 2 tbs Yeast Nutrient
  • 1 tbs Pectin Enzyme
  • 1 pkt K1V-1116
  • 3-5 Dried New Mexico Chilies (secondary)
  • OG: 1.092
