How to make 1000L of Agave wash (Mosto) using the “Agave Pure” product combination.

  1. For fermentations using agave syrup ending with 6% ABV: add 170 Kg of Raw Organic Agave Syrup (75% sugars, 76% Brix). Top up the tank with ambient temperature water up to the 1000L mark. Add 2.0Kg Agave Pure N2 nutrient and buffering solution to cooled agave juice ≤32°C, DO NOT BOIL THIS NUTRIENT. Dissolve, mix then add the rehydrated Agave Pure Y2 Yeast. Ferment at 30-32°C ( Temp controlled with cooling).
  2. For traditionally cooked agave using oven or autoclave (100% sugars from cooked agave) simply add 2.0 Kg Agave Pure N2 nutrient and buffering solution to cooled (≤32°C) agave juice (rinse and press enough cooked and shredded pinas to achieve a must of approx 12-13 Brix), Dissolve, mix then add the rehydrated Agave Pure Y2 Yeast. Ferment at 30-32°C ( Temp controlled with cooling).
  3. For other % ABVs using agave syrup/nectar see dosage table below. Note: if adding pure sugars like sucrose, glucose/dextrose to cooked agave or agave syrup, you may need to add more N2 than is advised below, contact our friendly tech support team for a customized solution.
  4. Take gravity readings every 24 hours to monitor the fermentation.
  5. For best results Distill using a copper pot still or a still with plenty of copper contact with the vapour phase.

Rehydration of Agave Pure Y2 Yeast:

In a clean container or bucket, Sprinkle yeast on 10 times it’s own weight in water heated to 35oC. Leave to soak for 20mins, then stir until the yeast is fully dissolved. Add immediately to the fermenter.
