Making Ethanol

Energy is a problem of the afro-descendant. Many are in developing countries, but energy deficiency, in my mind, is not a problem. is focus on providing information about methods of energy generation for the afro-descendant. Take ethanol for example, it is nothing but creating alcohol--moonshine. It can be used for cooking and running a generator, consumed like alcohol. It is easy to make.

Step 1. Mix the mash, which is cornmeal,sugar, yeast, and water---the following site shows you how to make the mash

Step 2. Put mash in a warm place for 3 to 4 days to ferment, producing the ethanol,

Step 3. Distill the mash, by boiling in a sealed pot, with copper tubing at the top. The gaseous ethanol rises through the copper tubing running through a bucket of cool water that cools the ethanol gas turning it into a liquid, ethanol.

Ethanol can be used for cooking. A simple stove can be made from soda cans.
