The skunky odor of methyl and ethyl sulfides.
Synonym for methyl alcohol, found in very small traces in wine and produced during fermentation.
Denatured alcohol. Used to check if a haze is pectin in origin. Add 3-4 fluid ounces of methylated spirit to a fluid ounce of wine. If jelly-like clots or strings form, then the problem is most likely pectin and should be treated with pectic enzyme.
