methanol and glycerin

Two questions:

What grade methanol do i need to obtain. i was doing some research and started to find different grades with different percentages.

Next is what do you guys do with your glycerin you extract?

Thanks

You should use the highest percentage you can get[ I use 98%] Lower percentages have water which is not good.

I use KOH so that I can use my glycerol for fertilizer, and mix it with my cattle feed.
