Getting ready to brew some sorghum and candi syrup for a gluten intolerant friend. We’ll see how it turns out. This got me wondering if agave nectar can be used as the main fermentable for a brew???
I’ve never done it, but see no reason that it couldn’t be done.
You can use it in place of other fermentables. Sugar, honey… And you can use it by itself.
Pulque is an agave-based fermented beverage, supposed to be very tasty. I would make some if I could find the agave in bulk at a reasonable price.
Might be worth a one gallon batch first to see if you like it, shouldn’t cost too much.

Today at the Winco supermarket I saw bulk agave for a little over $3 which is less than they charge for their bulk honey.
Isn’t saliva involved in making “traditional” Pulque? :shock:
I think that’s chicha. Chew the corn to start conversion. Sam C. and the peeps at DFH did it on an episode of the show brewmasters. Too bad they only had a handful of episodes.
