I did not spend much time at Bryn's link, but I do want to read more when I have the time, which I have been wasting otherwise... I highly recommend this: Why Alcohol Fuel? The Two-Minute Summary

Do corn and sugarcane have alternating seasons? I do not even know how to look into that, I tried.

Isn't the higher the sugar content the better for producing alcohol? My family does not drink alcohol, so I figure that is why I do not know anything about it, except that it burns pretty!

Grape-based ethanol? Wine?
