"Pulque" is made by the Tarahumara Indians of
the northern Sierra Nevadas from the sap of an agave cactus
plant. The sap is gathered by first cutting a cup-shaped cavity
in the cactus. The sap that gathers in the cavity is removed on
a daily basis to prevent the cavity from sealing itself. The sap
is then used to make pulque.
1 gallon agave sap
enough water to thin the sap to a
consistency slightly thicker than a barley beer wort
Mix the sap and the water in a fermenter and
pitch the yeast.
Allow the mixture to ferment completely then
