So with gas prices going up, of course I thought I would make some ethanol see what happens. This project was costly but anyone can make this with just about anything that can resist boiling water and a flame. So again this is what I needed to do. With great research off the internet I found that you can use anything really to make ethanol. First you need a good source of feedstock by feedstock I mean a good source of sugar or starch which can be fermented in the same process as which you make beer or wine. Your not going to drink it so it can be somewhat contaminated. Anyways go to your local wine making shop and ask them some questions they are a great help. The key is yeast and once you have your stuff done finished fermentation (when the bubbles stop) then you can put it to a distiller. My distiller that I made is a little fancy and costly but anyone can make their own by any means to cool the vapor to liquid. The most important key aswell to remember is to get a thermometer. Not all thermometers are the same water may boil a few degrees off like mine did at about 96 degrees. Keep the change in degrees in mined when your making ethanol. Remember water is at 99.8somthing and ethanol is at about 78 degrees. Ok from the start to finish......
Take your finished fermented stuff (mulch) and filter out the solid stuff from the liquid. By now you should have 15 alcohol put this in your boiler. Now when the thermometer tells you that your getting close to 78 then you open your valves and take your ethanol. As boiling continues you will see that the temp will gradually rise as it gets closer to water boiling point you will know that no more alcohol vapor is present just water vapor. In the end you will have about 95 percent alcohol. PLEASE DON'T DRINK THIS IT WILL KILL YOU. Now to take out the rest of the water get some lime from home depot or garden center take the lime you may have to dehydrate it in the oven. Once done mix the lime with the ethanol for about 24 hours and the lime will take up the rest of the water this is mixed with lime at a ratio of about 35 pounds (or more) of lime for each gallon of water to be removed. You could also use 3A or 4A molecular sieves but I can find this stuff anywere, or Japan.. When this is done put it through another filter and mix 15 percent gas to it. There you have it its done. You have made gasohol : )
