Best Answer

Grain alcohol is made from a food product such as corn or wheat. It is what is most commonly consumed. Wood alcohol is (obviously) made from wood and is fatally poisonous to humans.

Ethanol (grain alcohol) is also deadly, if you drink enough!

Why is ethyl alcohol called grain alcohol?

Ethyl alcohol (C3C2OH) known as ethanol in the IUPAC nomenclature is called grain alcohol as it is traditionally produced for distillation to pure alcohol by the fermentation of grain derived sugars. The name separates it from methyl alcohol (C3OH) called methanol which is derived from the fermentation of cellulose as is sometimes called wood alcohol.

What is the difference between grain alcohol and rubbing alcohol?

Difference In Grain and Rubbing AlcoholIf memory serves me correctly, grain alcohol is derived from the fermentation of various grains, with the most common being from corn, and it's safe to consume. On the other hand, rubbing alcohol contains isopropyl alcohol (which is a chemically made alcohol), and usually contains additional water and sometimes glycerine, and isn't intended to be substituted for either grain or wood alcohol. To drink it would make one very ill and may even be lethal, or cause blindness. In other words grain alcohol is not equal to rubbing alcohol. period.steph says no.
