      Thanks for the reply.  As a matter of fact, I am a member of the "Alcohol Fuel" group.  However, this thread was started here and I was just following the thread.  I'll see if there is any information in the other group about what enzymes to use.

      Thanks again,

      Hi Bruce,
      You may use enzymes, malt or Koji to convert starches to sugars in rice.  However, your in the wrong group here.  We distill for taste and drinking, not making fuel.  You should join our friends at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/alcoholfuel/ to discuss the most cost effective way of converting rice to make E-85.

Are there any other methods, i.e. the use of enzymes, malting the rice, malted barley, etc. which would convert the rice starch to sugar? I am interested in using rice to make alcholol fuel, not "Sake".
