      If you are making a simple sugar wash ther won't be any methanol in it so your headache was probably just coincidence.

For me this is a perfect way to store my sugar wash until it can be processed further. I dipped my finger into my concentrated wash just to get a sense of its taste: On the front end, it had no taste like water. On the back end, it was bitter because it had not been filtered.

This will give you something to think about as a means of long term wash storage until you have time to process it properly.
