Making toilet paper moonshine

**Major correction: I wrongly and repeatedly referred to T. Reesei as being a yeast, when it is actually another type of fungus. Yeast is also a type of fungus, so my comments about reaction conditions remain true, but it is incorrect to call T. Reesei a yeast. Or to say that the cellulase came from yeast.
**small correction: I also said that 20ml of 20% , when it was supposed to be 25ml.
For this video, I'm going to be doing exactly what the title says, and I'll be turning a roll of toilet paper into moonshine. This was something that I've been wanting to do for a while and I am really surprised how well it turned out!

just for suggestion I think it could work better if you use a reflux distillation so that you can get higher concentration alcohol

I like how the first pass of distillation got just short of the required percentage for the proof test that was done. Talk about bad luck.

I suspect this could be done with corncobs, corn stalks, and soy husks to create fuel for a practical real world application. Better yet, "Irreperibly Contaminated" class "Waste grade" recycled paper fiber could also be turned into high potency fuel this way.
As of a better method, using acidic method you mentioned before using the enzyme method would be most effective, and allow you to use a weaker acid.
You could do the cow's stomaches' method: Acid, Alkali, then Enzyme.
From the general knowledge I collected (never done it myself): you should always triple distill moonshine meant for human consumption due to it's source material containing quite a bit of methanol, and that methanol getting concentrated in with the ethanol. While other volatile substances are also a concern, you can taste those.
Also, as you mentioned with a big warning at the start, always check local laws considering home distillation. The exact laws vary by locality. Localities that do allow small amounts have a limit to quantity, and disallow for profit distilling. The exact definition of the later varies by locality too.

Home-distiling alchohol. Welcome to the Balkans. And 64% is low for home distilled alchohol. We go higher! hahaha

This reminded me of an old quote from an early french chemist about sugars:
"Gentlemen, take off your shirts, I'm going to turn them into sugar." or something like that.

Wood alcohol is not safe to drink. It’s called methanol.

should not stop at totally stop bubbling, CO2 will off gas for some period after fermentation is complete, SG or PH is the best measure. The yeast will also have an off white colour similar to the dehydrated yeast colour. Also should have stopped running at 87.5c

Nice job!
I'd really like to see shorter versions of your videos, it may not show *every* instance of stirring, boiling, etc... but I believe it's possible to give all the information required to replicate the experiment, while saving us (the viewers:) some time in front of the screen.
Funny how it takes so much longer to criticize than to give a compliment :)
Thank you
