This method only applies to ethanol. You can’t make any other alcohol this way.

The process

The starting material for the process varies widely, but will normally be some form of starchy plant material such as maize (US: corn), wheat, barley or potatoes.

Starch is a complex carbohydrate, and other carbohydrates can also be used – for example, in the lab sucrose (sugar) is normally used to produce ethanol. Industrially, this wouldn’t make sense. It would be silly to refine sugar if all you were going to use it for was fermentation. There is no reason why you shouldn’t start from the original sugar cane, though.

The first step is to break complex carbohydrates into simpler ones.

For example, if you were starting from starch in grains like wheat or barley, the grain is heated with hot water to extract the starch and then warmed with malt. Malt is germinated

Background

Polyester is a synthetic fiber derived from coal, air, water, and
petroleum. Developed in a 20th-century laboratory, polyester fibers are
formed from a chemical reaction between an acid and alcohol. In this
reaction, two or more molecules combine to make a large molecule whose
structure repeats throughout its length. Polyester fibers can form very
iong molecules that are very stable and strong.

Polyester is used in the manufacture of many products, including clothing,
home furnishings, industrial fabrics, computer and recording tapes, and
electrical insulation. Polyester has several advantages over traditional
fabrics such as cotton. It does not absorb moisture, but does absorb oil;
this quality makes polyester the perfect fabric for the application of
water-, soil-, and fire-resistant finishes. Its low absorbency also makes
it naturally resistant to stains. Polyester clothing can be preshrunk in
the finishing process, and thereafter the fabric resists shrinking and
will not stretch out
