I have read that thickeners DO help with hold too. I think the 1/2 teaspoon of agave I used isn't enough. For my next batch I think I'll use 1 teaspoon, I loosely based my measurements on Kathy Mack's FSG recipe, but she adds those amounts for EACH CUP of finished gel, before ingredients, so I probably should have doubled mine although it works just fine.
