Alright so I was wondering how to test for methanol in alcohol? Im making some "Mountain Dew" from corn kernels, water and yeast. I dont wanna go blind so how can I test for it? I also want to know so I can test some poorly fermented wine.

You dont have to worry about this in any wine, it is the distillation process that concentrates this to the pint it can possibly become a threat and really only if you were to extract that all by itself and drink it.
