Fermenting agave In copper

Recommended Posts

So I got 5 gallons of agave nectar today.along with the yeasts . So I plan on a test batch with all the great things I ve picked up here at the forumn.

If all goes well I will try to run a big batch . For me that is a 475 gallon still. I currently cook,ferment and distill out of the same rig.

Does anyone see an issue with or has anyone  had an issue fermenting agave in copper ?

It will be fine for your equipment and distillate, but note that traditional tequila production uses all stainless steel for every component of still and fermenters. Some of the big guys have copper in their stills, most don't.
