Homemade Mango Wine Recipe / Manga Wine


Manga Wine Recipe

It’s November already and hardly 52 days left to Christmas :).... Like I asked in one of my last year’s post have you started your Christmas preparations like soaking fruits for Christmas cake or making wine etc? This year I don’t need to soak much fruits as I have some left over from last year but wine I need to check if there is enough to last till Christmas ;)....  And if in case you are looking for a nice Christmas cake or wine please check my old posts.... Now we will proceed to today’s wine recipe…. This wine was made after a phone conversation with my neighbor and cousin Saira.... during one of our chats the topic of wine making came up and we got the idea of Mango Wine..... for a week Mango wine was in my mind and I was thinking how it would taste etc..... so on my next grocery shopping I bought a kilo of ripe mangoes.....Since my Guava Wine was a huge hit I decided to follow the same recipe and after the fermentation period I gave a bottle to my cousin to taste and according to her husband this is my best trial :)..... I am waiting for next summer so that I can buy some Indian Alphonso Mangoes and try this wine one more time.... I know it’s not mango season now, but if you are a wine lover and whenever you get hold of some good quality mangoes do try this I am sure you will love it.....

    1. Hi Sruthy, I only made it with fresh mangoes... But you can give it a try with mango pulp... just add 750 gms of mango pulp instead of 1kg mangoes and also reduce the amount of sugar according to the sweetness of the pulp.... do let me know how it turns out if you try it with pulp :)

    1. Hi Gita what happened to you this time? Did you use sour mangoes? Hope it has not become sour like vinegar. If not try adding more sugar and check. All the best

    2. I made it quite a while back-last mango season in fact. My husband says that they were not sour mangoes. The wine is bottled-should I try adding sugar now? I think this happened during a phase where I tried adding less sugar-in one case (grape) the wine went bad :(. My bad! LOL. Anyway, I really want to salvage the mango wine-just give me courage-may I add more sugar? I did add kalkandam but even that has not helped. It can't have turned to vinegar as the bottles are green.

    3. Yes Gita you can add more sugar and rebottle the wine. Let me know how it turns out

  10. Hi There, after the wine is bottled and corked does it continue to mature, is that why you wait a long time to drink. After the bottle is opened how long will the wine last?

    Thank you

  13. For straining can i use 'thorthe munde '? Because i cannot find muslin cloth in Kochi. Or is there any other term for muslin cloth in malayalam ? So that the shop people understand

  15. Hi Swapna,

    Thanks for the recipe; Trying this now

    It is 21 days now; Should I taste the wine for any particular taste before straining ? to make sure fermentation is done ?

    Why add kalkandam again to strained wine ? Is this to increase alcohol content ? Does the wine continue to ferment during 21-42 day period ?

    Thanks
    Dileesh

    1. Hi Dileesh,
      Wine will have a fermented smell.
      Kalkandam will give the wine a very nice taste. After 21 days wine will settle and age to perfection.

  16. Sounds delicious. Couple of questions: what can I substitute for Kalkandam sugar? (I live in Colombia and that is not avaialble.) Leo can I assume you are using Brewers yeast, not bread yeast?

    1. You can completely omit Kalkandom and instead increase sugar quantity. I am using bakers yeast as brewers yeast is not available in this country I live :)

  17. Hi Swapna
    I'm just wondering whether the strained off pulp has any uses. It seems a waste for it to go down the drain. As it smells so good I thought it might make some nice cocktail style drinks with lemonade or mineral water. Do you think it would be safe for a couple of days, what with all the alcohol in there? I think there would be a lot of goodness in there as a plant fertilizer if its not safe for people. Wendy

  18. Hi Swapna. I've just strained my first batch. Watching the mango pulp disappear down the sink made me wonder if the fermented pulp is ok to use for making cocktail type drinks for a couple of days with mixers like lemonade or mineral water. I hate waste! In your experience would this be a safe way to use. If not, I might use future lots as a plant fertilizer with all that yeast and pulp it should be pretty good. For the user asking about Kalkandom, I found it at the Asian supermarket labelled as lump sugar. Thanks.
