Ive completed two trial runs with whey/bread waste and whey/potato waste. The first was much more sucessful. I achieved 33% fermentable sugars and 11% alcohol. The second had 17% sugars and is fermenting as we speak. I would expect only 7% alcohol.
If I can consistently achieve over 12% alcohol this is going to be feasable.
My batches will be 170 litres so each batch will yield about 20 litres of 85% pure ethanol. I have modified an old toyota corolla to run on this mixture of ethanol and water so hope to be running by Christmas.
