An investigation into the production of ethanol from whole sorghum (Sorghum bicolar) under laboratory condition was
carried out. 300g of the malted sorghum produced 3% of alcohol. Fermentation of sorghum wort was aided with yeast,
Saccharomyces uvarum. The mashing technique employed during the research work was the infusion mash method. The
fermentation rate, the temperature and the pH values were assessed. Microbial examination showed that the bacteria species
Acetobacter spp., Pediococcus spp., and Escherichia coli were present in the wort. A known volume of fermentation liquor was
distilled and the temperature in the column was maintained at 95oc. the findings of this investigation in relation to the economy
of beer importation in Nigeria are discussed.
