Do yeasts and sugars create Methanol?


    The yeast we use to make beer does not produce methanol. However, it is an end product of fermentation. Methanol is produced by specific fermentation processes and in certain brewing processes.

    Adding the grains or enzymes into the wort in the making or during the brewing process could result in mini methanol production. However, to put things in perspective, it is believed that the quantity of methanol generated from this source is so small that it can be avoided.
