The sniff test.

That "recipe" didn't belong in the database, so I moved it to the winemaking forum for you. You may want to re-post some of the pertinant info, I didn't realize it would all be lost when I moved it. But, the database is not the place to post questions.

The main danger in fermented beverages is the creation of methanol (AKA wood alcohol). This caused by the breakdown and fermentation of the "woody" parts. If you are fermenting grape juice, not a problem. If you are making grappa, you would have to worry.

I saw the recipe. Believe me, nothing was lost.
I don't think there is any danger accidently making grappa from grape juice unless your name is Jeebus.
