This organic raw blue agave syrup comes from blue agave plants grown in the Jalisco state of Mexico, the only state where true tequila can be produced! Most people use it as a low-glycemic-index sweetener, however, we at Moonshine Distiller prefer to make “agave spirits” from it (it can’t be called tequila if it is not produced in Jalisco, Mexico). However, due to the high fructose content, many yeasts will have trouble fermenting it. We recommend the Moonshine Distiller 48-hour Turbo Yeast with it.
The containers come filled with 46 oz. of organic raw agave syrup, so you will need 3-5 of them for a 5-6 gallon batch. To make your agave nectar wash, simply mix 3 to 5 of the 46-oz containers of agave syrup with 4 to 5 gallons of water (with a temperature of approximately 70-80 degrees), dump into your fermenter, and add your yeast.
