I did a Federation Uni short course on distilling 2 years ago. One part was about Jerusalem artichokes. The lecturer said that industry wants desperately to use them for making alcohol but they cannot get the dirty flavour out of them because they are too hard to clean. It looks like you may have found a way. You'd better try to patent your method straight away!
Tax?
What's that?

everything was invented a long time ago. I was looking for literature on the topic of processing inulin for alcohol. The process was described in the book of the 1940s. During WW2, the USSR had problems with natural rubber for military purposes. Scientists were looking for alternative sources. Kok-sagyz was used as raw material. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taraxacum_kok-saghyz). In this plant, in addition to rubber, there is a lot of inulin. It was successfully used for the associated production of alcohol. My recipe is taken from this book. Purification of alcohol from such raw materials is more labor-consuming. Compared with ethanol from grain, this process is not economically interesting. Everything new is a well-forgotten old.
