    Do not ingest liquids with fermented wood in them. Very decent chance that you have a high level of methanol in there (assuming the purpose of fermentation was to make alcohol) methanol is an optic nerve poison that dissolved the back of your eyeball and can make you go blind, giving the true meaning to the saying "blind drunk"
    Secondly, as long as you arnt putting anything weird in your ens (such as wood or lead) and if you have checked that the pH is roughly neutral, you should be all clear to ingest your ens (again, assuming that you used all edible ingredients in the first place)
    Good bye most of humanity.

    Off-topic from ENS
    In my case, the purpose of fermentation was to make a type of vinegar. That is why I was checking the Ph to see if got down to 3.5 which tells me the tincture is acidic and was done to see about Botulism which doesn't live in an acidic substance. A brine of 2% salt and water would not create alcohol but it can create a type of vinegar/acidic/fixed spirit rather than a volatile/alcoholic spirit.

    You are correct that you don't want to consume methanol.
