It looks as if my agave is "sweating" a crystalline substance. The droplets are approx. 2 mm in diameter and twice as long.
Is this as it should be (also the surrounding yellowish patch in the second image) or do I need to contemplate corrective action (or perhaps even prepare for bottling Tequila :-) ?
UPDATE I have added another close(e)up-image of a droplet. It looks crystalline but quickly crumbles. It also seems as if there may be a thread attached (not visible in the picture), so I'm wondering whether it even originates with the agave; plus a droplet typically end ups in the armpits between the agave's leafs after it falls off a leaf.
