    I wonder how many Lambanog (coconut wine) poisonings will happen as a result of the liquor ban...

    Lambanog is distilled coconut sap normally is 40 45 % by volume, and best kept away from it. Poisonous.

    Actually it's not poisonous if made properly. It only poisonous when a distiller adds methanol to increase the alcohol content. To your point, I would go buying some some guy in the mountains cooked up.

    Methanol is added into lambanog to lower costs for producers. The FDA has repeatedly issued warnings to lambanog brewers over its high methanol content and stressed the importance of proper fermentation
    and production of coconut liquor to prevent poisoning.


    Edit add: Methanol is also byproduct of fermentation and will be distilled out first because of the lower boiling point than ethanol. If distillation is not done properly you will leave behind methanol which is poisonous.
