Re-use captured methanol

Am I able to re-use my captured methanol? How pure would it be? If so, would more than 20% need to be used in the next batch?

I reuse mine. I have a hydrometer (used for testing beer) that I test the Methanol with. As long as it is 95% or better it works just fine. I usually mix mine 50-50 with new Methanol.

Thanks Don. Hope all is well with you at your new "ranch".
