Default Anyone make Apfelwein with agave nectar?

I found some blue agave nectar at Wholefoods and a stroke of genius or stupidity overcame me. Rather than using corn sugar, I thought agave nectar would be a good partial or full substitute to corn sugar in making Apfelwein.

Anyone try this? Have I lost my mind to think this would be a good idea?

Yuri made a wine out of it...that is actually what you'd end up with. Give it a shot!
