Ethanol from Glucose syrup?
« on: June 28, 2021, 11:26:07 AM »
Hey guys, due to stupid moonshine makers in my country the ethanol prices became crazy expensive these days so I was wondering if I could produce some ethanol from pure Glucose syrup. I've read some stuff about fermentation of it with yeast yields 1 mole of ethanol and 1 mole of carbon dioxide but I've wanted to ask you guys first.  Thank you.

How is this possible ? If moonshine makers make illegal competition, then prices should be reduced !

True - yeast convert saccharides (glucose, fructose, saccharose) into ethanol and CO2. You only need proper size bottle and fermentation lock (filled with water to prevent access of air).

Yeast can produce up to 10- 15 % ethanol solution.
