I think i said this earlier.

Fruit booze is high in methanol and it isnt removed in say, wine. So i think there has to be some other thing seriously wrong to make you go blind or whatever.

My stepdad made some quince paste and i brought him a litre of my cleanest booze to infuse with it. Its tasting really good.

We're planning to sell it commercially and this is the first attempt. Its only a day old now so we'll keep tasting for a few weeks and see how it develops. Its pretty good now im pretty excited.

Fruit liquor is high in methanol but i do not understand how you can have enough of it to kill someone. Surely its lead and not methanol.

He had bought methanol to use as weed killer. They think he accidentally used that to make his brew.

quote:

It is unclear whether Lynam accidently mixed industrial methanol to make the grappa, or the men had inadvertently picked up a bottle of methanol when drinking at a donga on the property.

http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2016-06-08/concern-lethal-batch-of-grappa-not-diluted-lynam/7493498

quote:

The court heard the effects of methanol poisoning take between six and 30 hours to appear after ingestion.

It becomes toxic when it is mixed with chemicals in the stomach as the body tries to process it.

Methanol is potentially lethal if someone has 230mg/L of it in their blood.

The court heard that Mr Wilmot had 1800mg/L of methanol in his blood.

Mr Meredith said Lynam bought methanol to use as industrial weed killer and confused it with ethanol when the home brew was made.

Photos were tendered as evidence showing none of the containers or bottles of liquids at Lynam's house were labelled.
