natural flavour extracts

Does anyone have much experience with using natural flavour extracts? I've been working on getting a nice mango beer. Tried first just with cut fruit, but the flavour didn't come through. Have another on the go with a mix of mango juice and cut fruit, but I just saw an advert for flavour extracts like this https://www.canuckhomebrewsupply.com/co ... r-extracts

Was curious if anyone had found a high degree of success with them, and if so what were you using and how much per litre of beer?

Cheers!

I have never used flavour extracts. If these don't work for you, what about hops that have a mango flavour? I think there are hops from New Zealand that extract a mango taste.

Hmmm that would be an interesting avenue to explore. I wonder which one(s) that would be. I did use azacca hops, which are supposed to have mango notes, but I don't think they are from NZ. Also used Citra and Mosaic.

I've had good success with the ones sold by canuck/OBK; their apricot extract was amazing - nice apricot flavour, not at all artificial. The amount in a bottle was spot-on for an apricot-forward kettle sour. I'd suggest trying those for your mango beer.

I am about to try one of the 'Brewers Best' Adjuncts using a Chocolate for a Dark brew. Festa Dark Ale.
Looking forward to see if there is a difference.

Recently discovered these

https://amoretti.com/collections/craft-purees

Haven't tried them yet, but went through there reviews and there was one in the US that had left a favorable review, so contacted them directly to see if it was legit and how he felt about it, and he said they were great, not fake tasting and super easy to use.

Little pricey, and a 750ml bottle would last for a few 5 gal batches, but is something I would like to try.

They say 1-3 fl oz per gallon. So would depend on your taste.
