      In East Africa bananas are made into a beer. For the traditional way
      see -

      Unripe bananas have about 25% starch and only 1% sugar. Natural
      enzymes convert this starch to sugar, so ripe bananas have a 20%
      sugar content. To ripen green tip bananas quickly, keep them at 21C
      (70F), with very high humidity and no air circulation for 2-3 days.
      1 kg of bananas contain about 200 g of fermentable sugar. So 2.5 kg
      of bananas and 4l of water will produce 5%abv. It would be better to
      supplement with white granulated sugar to obtain a high alcohol
      content.
      There is a good Banana Wine recipe at -
      http://www.winekitz.com/kitzcorner/Recipes/banana-wine.html
      The pectinase enzyme in the recipe is necessary to remove any pectin
      haze in the wine. The recipe makes a good Banana Mash - 1.3 kg of
      bananas contain 250 g of sugar and adding an additional 1 kg of sugar
      produces a wine strength wash in 4 litres (1 US gal) of water.
