    produced. Fermentation rate was observed to be highest at 40°C while the pH before and after fermentation were 4.10-4.29 and 3.60-3.67 respectively. The concentrations of ethanol produced were 13.35 g/L, 27.45 g/L, 31.16 g/L, 36.35 g/L, 33.39 g/L and 28.94 g/L at 25°C, 30°C, 35°C, 40°C, 45°C and 50°C respectively.
