    I have heard of moonshine that is not made right causeing people to go blind. I could see how it might happen, and it's been referenced alot in TV and movies and stuff but it may just be an old wives tale. i dunno

    If I'm not mistaken...I think that the blindness was caused by antifreeze residue that was left in the radiators they used to brew/percolate/condense the shine through in backwoods stills.

    Nah the blindness comes from methanol. It's created in trace quantities and if your condenser coil is not just right will end up in the moonshine instead of evaporating away.
