Default I'm not complaining mind you but...why no headaches?

I don't ever get headaches from drinking homebrew. It doesn't matter if I have 4-5 glasses of my sweet porter (6.3%) or half a dozen mugs of my German Kolsch.

I just don't get headaches like I do with commercial beer or liquor.

I know there has to be a reason.

Mind you...I'm not saying I drink that much of my own most-awesome creation every night...well...okay...you got me there...

Anyone else have the same good fortune of saying so-long to the hot needle in the back of the neck since homebrewing?

The yeast that abounds in our unfiltered beers is full of vitamin B complex. While you drink, the alchohol strips your body of these nutrients. At the same time, the yeast replenish it.

I'll have to check but I read an article some place that indicated a high content of fusel alcohols might be one component of the headache associated with megaswills. If I can locate the article I post what I find.

I've heard the vitamin B explanation before too.

Brewers yeast is sold as a health supliment, plus lots of commercials put all sorts of crap in.

If you can find that article...awesome.

Living in St. Louis you can imagine the uphill battle trying to convert my AB zomby friends to homecraft brew.

One thing on my side is that they all agree...Bud Light gives them a terrible headache. And yet they continue...

Me...I'll take my bitters brew any day.
