The objective of this on our end is to compare the amount of
ethanol distilled from cornmeal to the amount of CO2 produced. What
hypotheses can you make about this given the reaction for
fermentation shown above?
Ethanol Fermentation Pyruvate + 2 NADH → Ethanol + CO2 + 2 NAD+ H OH H3C-C-C-o pyruvate ethanol carbon dioxide
