Agave please
I have a really nice light lager I do, and was wondering if I substitute Blue Agave syrup for the sugar, would this be a big change or not noticable. Plus I also wonder how much i should use to substitute for 1 pound corn sugar?

Its probably the same if your priming with honey. I dont know the numbers. I had problems fermenting with agave but it might be the type i used.

Assume it is 36 points per lb. You would need about 10% more to substitute for corn sugar.

I really couldn't tell you how much flavor you would get, but I suspect it will be less than you are expecting, and probably a waste of money to use it (unless it is free).
