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

    You may be wondering about the amount of methanol produced during the brewing process. If so, you are not alone. Methanol levels in beer have been overlooked by many in the brewing industry due to their minimal concentration.

    Typically beer contains less than one mg/kg of methanol. This means that consuming 500 liters in one sitting would only result in 500 milligrams of methanol. To put this into perspective individuals consume around 10 milligrams of methanol daily through breathing and consuming foods that contain alcohol and phenols (such as fruits, vegetables, tea, and fruits).
