It looks like people have just substituted it for honey or some other type of highly fermentable sugar in various recipes. I just bought some yesterday. I want to incorporate it in some kind of gluten free recipe for my wife.

Have at it, and good luck! Let us know how it turns out!

Just do a google search for "homebrewtalk agave beer"... that's how I found out what people were doing with it.
