Now what ya gonna do with all that booze? If you've got reasonable equipment & skills, you should get roughly 280-300 litres of 40% spirit outta 300kg raw sugar. About a 5 year supply for 1 hobbyist. 2-3 yrs for old soaks like me. Hope you've got lots of friends & rellies. If not you soon will have. :))
