The present invention features a method for facilitating the fermentation of a high solids composition. The method involves subjecting the high solids composition to granular starch hydrolyzing enzyme during the fermentation process to provide a steady source of glucose. Moreover, the instant method is carried out under reduced pressure to selectively remove volatile components such as ethanol and water from the fermentation vessel.
