After reading a recent BYO article, I think I'm gonna take a stab at this, was wondering if anyone has brewed a batch, how it turned out, and I wanted to get the alcohol up a bit after some research realized the ABV is mostly in the neighborhood of 3%, would prefer closer to 5, was thinking rice solids. Any advice?

Thanks.

I have a gallon bubbling away right now. Don't add rice... you'll end up with Pulq-weiser.

What ABV are you expecting, where did you get the Agave?

I just downsized the BYO recipe to 1 gallon so the ABV should be the same as what's in the mag. I got my agave from Walmart it was Madhava light.

Took gravity today it's at 1.026 and should dry out more. I believe the recipe in BYO says it'll go to 1.010. The sample tasted like Dr. Enuf (for anyone whose had the pleasure from East TN).

I'd like to know how it turns out as well. That article intrigued me too.

On the lookout for Dr Enuf to get an idea

Is this basically an agave syrup mead? That's pretty different than pulque, which is a good thing. Real pulque is really vegetal and has the consistency of snot.

I came up with a way to describe the taste of Dr. Enuf. 7-up with a Flinstone vitamin aftertaste. Considering that Agave nectar is supposed to be vitamin rich I would guess that's where the taste comes from (Dr. Enuf is vitamin infused).
