Single-Malt Gasoline

A while ago I mentioned how in Germany and in Mexico they're forgoing crops of beer barley and tequila agave (respectively) to grow biofuel-friendly corn for the supposed new market for the product.

Well, finally someone put on their thinking cap and decided to attempt to make biofuel that doesn't require the inhuman sacrifice of our favorite adult beverages.

At Abertay University in Scotland, a researcher was given a year grant to find ways to turn residue from beer and whisky (known in the industry, I believe, as distillers dry grain or DDG) into biofuel. Currently it's recycled into animal feed, but it may soon feed your imaginary biofuel car instead.
