Well aside from the methanol and other stuff if he didn't know what he was doing that will cause blindness or death if he distilled it, I can so no good coming from yet another hooch thread. Sugar and water and yeast won't hurt you if he didn't distill it. It'll just taste bad and cause hangovers. This kind of hooch gives moonshine a bad name. Good moonshine is actually a great drink!
There are better forums to address these questions. Homebrewtalk is not one of the forums that would work for this.
