The Americana agave cactus in my front yard has bloomed its 12 foot tall century bloom. it was so heavy it fell over. I want to try and make pulque or even agave wine. I do not know the process at all , what I do know is the pulp in side the leaves is like acid on the skin (never cut an agave with a chainsaw!) I have skimmed through the forums and recipes and have found nothing close to agave pulque or agave wine. If there is an answer here I hope I find it soon, The century bloom in my yard will eventually rot so I need answers now!
If anyone knows the process from start to finish please let me know the ins and outs & how to's. Please include the homemade recipe.
Thank you

I have never made pulque but Scott Mansfield has a recipe in Strong Waters (The Experiment LLC publishing, 2010) that calls for (per gallon) 1 qt agave nectar in 3 qts water, nutrient, acid blend and champagne yeast.
