Hi SteelB, 

I may be late to the party, however, we have a great source of agave. We have access to 4 different color variations of 100% blue agave nectar and stock both a light and a dark option in the US. As Brewstilla said, it is really important to dilute the 75% brix solution. We recommend 12 brix as this maximizes yields without difficult fermentations. The correct balance of nutrients is also needed (DAP & vitamins). Please feel free to reach out to me and I can assist. 

All the best, 

JB Harrell

We just ran a tote of the dark nectar from https://www.nectave.com/bulk-agave-nectar/. All stripped and will do spirit run tomorrow, happy with the product thus far. Shot a bit too high on the original gravity due to available fermentation capacity, and should have used a buffering agent to keep pH from crashing, but lessons learned for next time.

How did it turn out?

Really happy with how our agave spirit turned out and have had positive feedback from accounts

Nice - are you getting a solid Tequila flavor? We used a different brand of nectar and SafTeq Blue Yeast and it was a solid product but a little too clean and not exactly what we are looking for. If you are getting close to a blanco tequila flavor instead of a sweeter vodka/rum flavor, I'd be interested in what yeast you used if you would be willing to share.
