The question: What is the amount of Methanol generated in the process of brewing?

You might be asking, “How much methanol is created during the process of the brewing process?” If you are there, you’re not alone. The average concentration of methanol found in beer is minimal that it’s been ignored for centuries by many people within the brewing industry.

The typical beer will contain a final level of less than one mg/kg of methanol. That means that if had consumed 500 liters in one sitting, it would be just 500 milligrams of Methanol.

To give you an idea, people consume approximately 10 milligrams of methanol each day just by breathing and eating foods that contain alcohol as well as chemical compounds called phenols (including fruits, vegetables, tea, and fruits).
