Default alregies???????

Iv drank PLENTY of beer, but up until now Iv never had any type of reaction. For the past few years, Iv been drinking IPA's (hopsicutioner, bells 2 hearted and such). The past 2 beers that I have brewed, (the only 2 and both being extracts) Iv had some kind of reaction. It seems that my face gets flushed, my cheeks get red.... I can drink a 6er of IPA's and I have no ill effects, but both of my home brews have had an effect on me....... The first brew I did was bottled, and the second brew ( the one Im having ATM is kegged)
Any Ideas????????

Its probably not an IPA thing. Since your comparison was between commercial and homebrewed beer, maybe you are sensitive to the higher numbers of yeast in homebrew compared to filtered, commercial brews?

May be an odd question but are you Asian or have some Asian heritage?

May I ask about this question? Is there something about homebrew and Asians?

interesting..... Iv seen a few vids on running the beer through a filter... recon this would take out the yeast load? Im just trying to figure this out..
I know it aint the beer, but its something in it

This was going to be my first question. We called it the Asian Red. By we I mean my Korean friend called it that.

Number one google result for "asian red" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcohol_flush_reaction

It's possible that drinking unfiltered beer might give you a reaction, usually it's a yeast allergy, at least in high concentrations. That's all I can think of.

thanks. I guess I need to look into making a filter or something and filtering before racking into a keg.
