Are distilleries using degerminated corn? If not, I am surprised that there are no negative consequences due to the oil.

Although I have no idea what degerninated corn is, I know that the distilleries get standard U.S. #2 from the same silos in Indiana as everybody else and it's whole kernel, which is ground at the distillery.
