I understand that citrus fruits are one of those "naturally immune to brewing" types of fruits, but has anybody by chance who has ever brewed an alcoholic drink using mandarins?

Yeah but Ferg may be suggesting that more a successful base for such a beverage may be produced via methods not usually used the production of beer.

Cruisers are pretty cheap anyway.

[EDIT: added stuff]

Ya think?

1.7kg copers lager and a kilo of sugar is cheap.


Cruisers are a massive rip off unless you're comparing them with Westvelerteren trippel, but only a total knob would do that. :p

Chip Walton brews a Clementine Cal Common in this episode. The technique he uses could easily be transposed to mandarins.

Their Temple Garden Yuzu Ale is also pretty good and would be well worth emulating. For the yuzu, they use both zest and juice and add at the end of boil. Dunno their process for either of the mikan ales.

I didn't read the op as meaning water purifying type Mandarin drink.

Maybe try a Mandarin wine? My parents property has a few trees that get overloaded every winter. Been meaning to try something myself one winter.

Our try some if the wine makers forums.

I want aware that citrus had the yeast killing/stifling enzyme that mango does. U can ferment lemons so u should be able to ferment Mandarins. I haven't tried but im sure if u can ferment them there will be some info on Ahb or other brew forums. In sure I've seen Mandarin wheat beers etc. u should be able to make a Mandarin wine, .nfi what it will taste like though.

Just google "Skeeter Pee". I know it sounds weird just google it and you will see that it is a Hard Lemonade.
I have 6 trees that are so full of Mandarin's the branches are starting to snap. I have been waiting to have some fermenter space and then i'm going to give it a crack!

Skeeter pee has been discussed on Ahb before. Avg recipe imo. There are plenty of good hard lemonade recipes on Ahb. Gmkaide, and Dr smurtos lemonade are 2 of them.

I am sure it has been brought up here before. I was just pointing it out that citrus is fermentable and I am sure that you could use the same recipe and use Mandarin's instead of Lemon.
