Re: Corn Vodka / simultaneous saccharification and fermentation / A. niger and S. ceverisae
- Hi Eddi, I read koji fungus (Aspergillus oryzae) is a strong producer of amilasa, and that's way it can convert starch into smaller sugars.
What do you think about Asperguillus niger?
I have a paper, I send you - 43-241.pdf - , were some one use Asperguillus niger and Saccharomyces ceverisae to produce ethanol.
Does anyone here has ever done something like that?
I am also worry about A. niger - toxins, I send you a paper - 60.pdf -
Do you know is I can eliminate toxins in distillation process?

Well, the best suited would probably be the koji fungus, which is used in the production of sake. But really, I'd stick with the tried and true bourbon tradition--just use a little bit of malt to provide the necessary enzymes to convert. 10-20% should be fine. And you can buy enzymes as well. I.e.: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/amylase-enzyme-1-5-oz.html
Also, here's a forum thread where the poster was making 100% corn beer. Close enough for your purposes ;)

> Hi, I had made vodka using only corn. I use HCl, so expensive by the way, to hydrolyze the starch.Ya Know man Most KY & TN liquor does not use this product ?
So why would you ?I just read in a biochemistry book about hydrolyze the starch. There were two ways. First using acid (HCl or H2SO4). Second using enzymes, I do not have enzymes so I use acid :-(Please, could you give me a recipe for corn vodka?is it possible reduce starch into smaller sugar using a fungus or bacteria?I have several bacterias and fungus right to my hand, or I can buy it.
