Okay, I know this is crazy but I had a dream last night about a tequila recipe. I am going to have to try it. Tequila is the one recipe that we have not been able to mimic.
Here are my thoughts and plans. I have a couple of bottles of Agave syrup. I am going to use them with………..Garbanzo beans. Yeah crazy huh? I think my flute might pull this off.
Here is the part I think we may be missing. Backset. Even if we are not getting our hands on the plants or enough Agave syrup for conventional Tequila, maybe we can achieve good flavor by using backset.
My plan. I will nock up five gallons with my two bottles of agave syrup. I will run it and keep it as feints after tasting. I will use backset to nock up another batch. Maybe even boil the backset for awhile to concentrate it.
Of course, I will have to buy some tequila to do flavor comparing and see what we might do from there.
Not only did I dream this, in the next dream I was explaining it to someone. Crazy.
I know what instigated this. My girlfriend asked me last night why I did not make Tequila. I said, we cant get the plants and we don’t know how to fake it..
