Low's side were 3-0 victors against the same opposition on Friday, with the triumph seeing them go five points clear of second-placed Sweden, who have a game in hand.
Despite Germany's win, Low knows his side were far from dominant in the game even with the score at 2-0.
The hosts hit the crossbar and went close to making it 2-1 before Thomas Muller's goal settled Germany's nerves.
Low does not want to see a similar situation develop at the Frankenstadion on Tuesday night, and has reminded his team of their duties.
"We took the tempo out of the game a little in the second half in Kazakhstan and then made mistakes and got a few problems," said Low.
"Kazakhstan created a few chances then and we will be reminding the players again that we can only be so dominant if we keep the tempo high and do everything 100 per cent.
"I expect us to go into the game with the same vehemence as we did the first half in Kazakhstan, and if we can get an early goal, we can get another one quickly."
While Germany were flying back from their longest trip in qualifying, the Republic of Ireland were doing them a favour by holding Sweden to a draw.
"The 0-0 between Sweden and Ireland has changed things a little," said Low.
"If we get three points now, then I can see us being in a very good position, not that we are afraid of anybody.
"Ireland play Austria and I think the winner of that game has a serious chance (of finishing second)."
Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mario Gotze and Thomas Muller were all on target in Astana, but the former will be suspended for Tuesday's game.
Despite the Bayern Munich midfielder's absence, Germany should prove too strong for a Kazakhstan side who have picked up just one point from their opening five matches.
"If you score a victory away then there is the danger that you keep this in your head for some time," Low told reporters. "We have to keep reminding the players that we are playing at home and we will only win if we have the right attitude."
In Schweinsteiger's absence, Ilkay Gundogan will get the chance to join Sami Khedira in the holding role in front of the defence, and Low has tipped the Borussia Dortmund player to go far.
"He [Gundogan] has made a huge leap forwards, not only with Dortmund but also with us," Low said.
"He has gained a lot of respect and is playing at the highest level. He has everything it takes to be a world class player."
Up front, Mario Gomez will face a late fitness test and if he fails, Low will once again play without a recognised striker, but with a system which allows one of the three attacking midfielders to push up.
"A striker has got to be quick-thinking, good at winning possession and have a good finish," he said.
"We have strikers like Gomez or (Miroslav) Klose who fulfil that, but we also have other types of player like (Marco) Reus and (Mario) Gotze who can play up front too.
"You always need one player who plays up front."
Republic of Ireland can move into second if they get past Austria at the Aviva Stadium - although they will be without record goalscorer Robbie Keane.
The Los Angeles Galaxy striker picked up a calf strain in Friday's goalless draw in Sweden and is set to be replaced by Wolves striker Kevin Doyle.
The Republic's home form has been far from ideal with a 6-1 reverse against Germany in October still fresh in their minds. However defender John O'Shea is confident they can register a vital three points.
"If we can start on the front foot, like we did against Sweden, and have the pressing, cohesive unit that we had the other night and stop Austria playing, then we can build our attacks from there," he said.
"But let's wait and see how they decide to approach the game as well.
"It will be on us as the home side, but we are not going to be too silly and go gung-ho because they have got lots of attacking threats.''
Austria are the group's second top scorers with 11 goals so far and are ahead of Giovanni Trapattoni's side courtesy of their far superior goal difference.
Thumping victories over Kazakhstan, and, on Friday against San Marino, have certainly helped Marcel Koller's side, who are wary of the Irish threat.
"Ireland are a different standard than the Faroe Islands. Every player must be aware that it will be harder," he told reporters.
"We were a little bit too loose at times and did not keep our organisation as I would have liked. And if we slack off against strong teams like the Irish, they will strike. If they see an opportunity, they will bite.
"We will pick a team so that we can win. We want to win. But if a draw looks likely, we will take a point."
