So I have some extra agave nectar and Patron tequila laying around in my house, and I crazy idea popped in my head. I borrowed some recipe ideas from other boards and threw them together to compliment the agave nectar. Here it is:
Program used: BeerSmith
Batch size: 5 g
pre-boil size: 7.37 g
boil time: 90 min
efficiency: 65% (my efficiency blows because of buying pre-crushed grains).
Estimated abv: 8.5%
Pre-boil G: 1.057
12#, 8oz of Rahr Pale Ale Malt.
1# of Munich Malt.
12oz of Crystal 60L
4oz of Honey Malt
4oz of Special B malt
4oz of White Wheat Malt
1# of unprocessed Agave Nectar
1oz Simcoe - FWH
1oz Magnum - 60
1oz Simcoe - 30
1oz Amarillo - 15
1oz Amarillo - 3
1oz Amarillo - Dry
Yeast: 2 packets of US-05 (rehydrated).
Mash in at 151 F for 60 minutes.
Mash out at 168 F for 10 minutes.
Flysparge with 3 gallons of water at 168 F.
1 shot of Patron tequila per gallon of beer. (5 shots)
add 3.34 ounces of corn sugar to water to carb, or keg it.
Make sure to buy the unprocessed kind of agave nectar, usually the darker it is the less processed it is. I hear the less it is processed, the more agave character pulls through the fermentation.
Any ideas for changes and critiques are welcomed, as I am fairly new at creating my own recipes from scratch. Just keep in mind you may have to love tequila like I do in order to enjoy this concept.
