Methanol is less acidic than water or WATER IS MORE ACIDIC.
This is because the -OH group in alcohols is less polar than the OH group in water. The electron releasing nature of the R group in alcohols decreases the polarity of the OH bond. As a result, water is a better proton (H+) donor than alcohol. All​Alcohols, in general are weaker acids than water.
