OG was lower than expected.
Transferred to Secondary on 3.20.12
Transferred to Bottles on 5.14.12 Taste was great. Very Mangoey. Really great potential!
Tasting Notes Tasting now 3 weeks from bottling and it gets better every day. The Mango is pronounced, and pleasant. Not much of a 'saison' spicyness - perhaps we try a different yeast? Or more bittering hops? Could definitely use more alcohol content. Need to measure OG before we top with water, but will also probably try another 1-2lb of LME. Also, not sure if the full 1lb of Candy Sugar is necessary as the Mango adds it's own brand of sweetness.
