hi guys
im adding fruit to a all grain recipe kit i brought from country trading store its a mango pale ale i made her as per instructions everything went well I've added fruit to fermenter once gravity had dropped to 1.018 it was 500g of mango diced along with a few hops its all in a cloth bag , im guessing this must of added a bit of sugar to ferment a little more im not sure but anyone with any ideas on if i should leave it in longer than 3 days or not ? tonight is day three, there was no instructions on when to add the mango i nearly used it as a hop stand but i read on the net this was the simple way to do it with fresh tasting results its controlled at 18C got no idea never added fruit before but had a pineapple spa at backbone and it was good
