Default Hangovers by Apfelwein

Ughhh....does that aspect of apfelwein where you felt like you got gang banged in your eye socket go away with aging whatsoever? Just got a little tipsy off a couple pints of 3 week fresh Apfelwein the other night and I could have sworn I was the star of a porno titled "Man skull orifices and hard things" the night before. It hurts in all the wrong ways.

No I don't have any aspirin at my place, I see that one coming.

Oh what little sympathy I have for Ye who hath disregardeth the General Warnings of Apfelwein.

GENERAL WARNINGS

Excessive consumption of Apfelwein WILL get you drunk at warp speed.

Drink a quart of water and take 3 aspirin before going to sleep tol help reduce the effects of excessive Apfelwein consumption as well as the urge to call EdWort a M'F**kR the next morning!

I fermented my batch at 68F solid. It took three months to finish, but it doesn't give me the slightest hangover. I'm thinking that alot of people are fermenting their apfelwein at too warm a temperature, which could be resulting in the production of fusel alcohols, which are hangover producers.

I think you hit it on the head. I have 2 batches, one fermented at 60F and one at 70-72F. The warmer one has a distinct alcohol note, and on the first glass the headache hits me. Like I can feel it coming in the first few sips, very different from the cooler fermented one. Like "choo choo here comes the train of pain sucker". ouch

Hmmmm... My latest batch was fermenting in a room at 74F for about 24 hours.

I thought that it was a bit warm and dropped it in a water bath. I probably didn't catch it in time, because it started fermenting 5 hours after it got yeast.

Yeah, well I'm not knocking it in any way, the stuff is delicious. But even in my college days of slamming 151 I have not experienced an instant spear to the head like this. Be wary of fermenting at warmer temps maybe? Or I guess mine needs to age, it's wayyy young. Pleasure and pain.

Maybe young. I have noticed that my older apfelweins are very smooth. Earlier on the alcohol is a bit more prominent.

I don't usually get headaches so I can't comment on that one.
