It is advisable to throw out the foreshot of any distillate, be it fruit- or grain-based. There are other fermentation product aside from methanol that you don't want to consume, including acetone and formaldehyde. Also, there are enough variables in fermentation (yeast nutrients, temperature, oxygen levels, adjuncts such as herbs) that the potential for methanol production an not be ruled out. This is a brilliant build, congratulations! My only comment is that re-circulating water around the condenser will improve your output, and is a simple addition compared with what you have accomplished already.
