Industrial alcohol : sources and manufacture by Harvey Washington Wiley( Book )

15 editions published between 1906 and 1911 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is apparent that the business of distilling alcohol is one which calls for a considerable investment and no small degree of technical skill. It can not be conducted advantageously, from a commercial point of view, in very small plants on account of the proportionately high cost of the plant and of the labor; and many of the so-called "wastes" which have been suggested as fermentable raw materials are so poor in fermentable substance or so expensive to handle that their availability is thereby impaired. It seem that the business, to be productive of satisfactory returns, must be conducted on a fairly large scale, and that the best success is likely to be attained with raw materials of the general types already in use, namely, maize, potatoes, and molasses. The industry is not suited to every locality, and it is most likely to be successful if carried on systematically on a very large farm, or if supported by the joint interests of a fairly large community. The alluring statements sometimes made regarding large financial returns to be obtained by making industrial alcohol with waste, raw material, unskilled labor, and a "cheap" distilling outfit are misleading and can only result in loss if followed."--Conclusion (p.32)

Industrial alcohol : uses and statistics by Harvey Washington Wiley( Book )

8 editions published between 1906 and 2012 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is important that the farmer should have a general idea of the uses to which industrial alcohol (usually denatures) may be devoted. While this information is not necessary for the production of the raw materials, it is nevertheless valuable in indicating the particular lines of industrial development which may be promoted by free alcohol in the arts as related to the welfare of agriculture. The technical uses of alcohol are extremely numerous and no attempt will be made to give them all, but only to mention those which are of the greatest importance."--Introduction
