kegged and carbing up now. had difficulty getting it out of the fermenter because of all the puree and trub, they wouldnt chill past about 50 degrees and froze the glycol line. i was set up for closed transfer but it wouldnt come out of the bottom port so i had to siphon out the top. not ideal for minimizing o2.

lost a lot of volume because of the fruit, next time prob want to brew 6 or 7 gallons wort for a 5 gallon yield.

took a couple sample pours, there is hop dust in these pours, hopefully just in the first couple pours. probably because of the fruit and not dropping temp all the way, the hops didnt settle out the way they normally do. next time consider using hop bags for the hops and the vanilla.

the beer tastes pretty good so far, a little bitter - the hop debris contributes some to this but probably we could scale back the hot side hops

brew day last night, sort of brewed this 5gal recipe side by side, combined wort at the end.

got to 1081 with 1lb sugar , 2lb lactose, no peaches and 11.5 post boil volume. in fermenter its more like 10 gallons. expecting volume and gravity loss once fruit goes in.

i have 3 cartons peach puree need to decide if i am going to order more to keep it consistent or just use store bought. worried about the brownish color i got with the store bought back in like 2015 in cape may. the premade puree turned out lovely in a peach wheat earlier this year, but its expensive.

recycling mango maya into this peach version, adjusting the grain bill for g40 and lower expected efficiency 55%, currently showing about 7% abv which is fine, even 6.5 would be fine. optional cane sugar in case of low OG.
should be hitting somewhere around
1075 at 50% eff for 6.5% abv
1080 at 55% eff for 7.0% abv

i think prob just go with tap water.

need to figure out which hops and how much. i sense that a lot of the hops in mango maya were lost so maybe tone it down a little.

could consider different fruits, strawberry or orange creamsicle, passionfruit, but i think peach sounds the best, although overlaps with darryls peach pie ale a little bit.

will need 10 gallons of this brew but will likely be brewed on both g40 and igloo/digiboil setups side by side.
