Does a sugar wash create Methanol?

  • by

No. Sugar wash creates no methanol at all. Instead, sugar wash makes moonshine from distilled sugar water with an alcohol content of less than 15 percent (by volume).

It is then heated and reduced to a syrup-like consistency before being used in the process of distillation to make moonshine.

Moonshiners utilize sugar instead of enzymes or grains to make their corn whiskey, giving it a more creamy, delicious taste.
