Default Tequiza Clone

Finally going to try some Agave and lime in a brew:

6 gallon batch

4.00lbs Wheat Malt
6.00lbs Pils Two-row
1.00lbs Flaked Wheat
1.00lbs Flaked Rice

0.70lbs Agave Syrup (added at flameout)

.5oz Magnum @ 60
.5oz Hallertau @ 5

Lime Zest soaked in vodka added at kegging.

Would it be best to leave out the Hallertau?

I've not used agave syrup in brewing before, but isn't it a simple sugar that will be completely fermentable?

Yeah, I just considered it corn syrup for the calculations. I should get a little agave taste and aroma after the sugar is fermented.

I'd add the agave at the end of active fermentation.

This is only conjecture - but I suspect any flavor and aroma will be obliterated by the boil and during fermentation. I wonder if using a tequila flavoring would be more appropriate for injecting some flavor than agave syrup.

OK, the Tequiza clone has been in the keg long enough to carb now, so I had a little taste last night.

It needs to age, but is pretty good now. The lime comes through nice and clear, but there is really no detectable agave flavor. I guess the yeast ate it all, that stuff seems to have more fermentables than corn syrup.
