0.75 oz Fuggles [4.50 %] (60 min) Hops 11.6 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (45 min) Hops 8.7 IBU
0.50 oz Fuggles [4.50 %] (30 min) Hops 6.0 IBU

I did an extract one. I used a pound of nectar.

The flavor was really good.

Where did you add the agave? I can't decide - at flameout, after primary fermentation, or into the secondary.

I think it was at flameout. I'm pretty sure it wasn't the secondary.

A little old here, but do you have the recipe you used for the Extract version? There is not much agave beer info around here!
