Q ) How much does it cost to produce 1 gallon of ethanol?
A ) It will
cost about $1.10 to $1.20/gal to make the alcohol from various feed-stocks like corn, barley, potatoes, or Jerusalem artichokes. You
will also have by-products which you can sell or use as animal feed, reducing the total cost down to about $.95/gal.
Or, you can make it the cheap and easy way for only $1.20/gallon on
a large scale, buying molasses by the ton (if it is a high sugar molasses). See my page on Molasses and Rum.
