  1. :chug: thanks for all the advice guys! Sounds like I'm gonna have to sit on this agave ale for quite some time and hope that it conditions into a fine aged beer. Oh we'll, it was worth a shot, I wasn't all that excited about drinking the Classic American Light, that was forced upon me in the brewers kit, to begin with. I figured it was worth sticking something in there to jazz it up, and the only thing I had available that I could try with my limited brewing knowledge was agave. I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed.
  2. Is there anyway to salvage the current batch by adding malt to even out the malt/adjunct ratio and then maybe adding more yeast to kickstart the fermentation process again? This may sound ridiculous but I'm just speculating on ways to save the batch...
  3. My agave ale has been fermenting for 10 days. Can I open up my little brown keg and add agave to it so more of the agave flavor comes through? Will I risk introducing bacteria to the batch that will ruin the flavor? I have heard that the yeast will continue to eat the sugar of the agave even after introducing the sugar late in the fermentation process which would only add more alcohol rather than a sweet flavor.
  4. Thanks for the insight guys! Can I add agave later in the fermentation process in order to achieve some sweetness in the beer? For that matter, when is the secondary fermentation process? Is it the same thing as priming or is it a second phase in the Little Brown Keg that Mr. Beer doesn't address? They instruct you not to open the keg during fermentation so is it possible to open the keg after a week of fermentation and add agave to achieve sweetness?
  5. I am brewing my first batch of beer with Mr Beer and am using the given Classic American Light. I added a cup of agave nectar to the wort to try to add a little flavor to my first beer. First of all, what kind of beer is the classic American light? I would assume it is a lager but it doesn't say exactly in the description. It is still a top fermenting yeast so does that make it a light ale? Why doesn't the description say exactly what type of beer it is? And is it a light calorie beer or just a lighter bodied beer? I'm looking to add some extra agave flavor to the beer and maybe even get some agave sweetness to the taste so I'm wondering if it would help to prime my beer with agave instead of table sugar. And if so, how much? I'm using sixteen ounce bottles so is it the same 1 tablespoon measurement of agave as sugar? Thanks for any help you may have! The Brewmoster
