Agave Syrup (light)
Agave syrup is produced from Mexico's Blue Agave cactus plant, the same species used to make tequila. It has been extracted by hand from its pineapple shaped core for centuries. The flower shoot is cut out and the sap collected.
It is gluten free and a natural sweetener and can be substituted for sugar or honey in recipes.
It is made of all simple sugars (glucose and fructose), so it is highly fermentable. In brewing, you would typically use it to replace corn syrup or honey.
Several commercial breweries used agave syrup in their ales. (Blue Moon Brewery (Blonde Ale) , Brakenbridge Brewery (Agave wheat beer)
