FWIW most of what animals benefit from out of corn is still there after the
distilling process and is sold to local farmers. The sugar that is removed
pretty much just makes animals fidgetty (just like children).


This is still stupid however. Personally I live in the Western New York
fruit belt. Back in the 70s when gas went up (and I was a wee impressionable
young'un) I looked into distilling corn alcohol and decided that apple jack
was a much simpler way to go. All those bruised apples that possibly get
made into cider, or more likely get made into hog food or compost, could
yield a fine bit of white lightning with just a bit of yeast and some heat.

The fruit growers turn over sized and blemished fruit in drinking alcohol.
They actual get more for it than the fruit.

We have a local man who manages a fruit farm while his wife runs a winery.
He says he'll be harvesting ______, have surplus or damaged fruits, and call
home to say "Honey, tonight you're making ______ wine."

Works if you have enough of an outlet for it...

The fruit growers in Hood River built their own distillery, so all the
farmers send their fruit they are unable to sell there. Helps all of them.
The new problem they have now is fruit from South America which is hurting
the fruit growers both in Washington and Oregon.
