I kinda let this one sit around since Oktoberfest - you see, we drank this stuff on the bus down to the festivities, and let me tell you I rarely puke (like, never), but the next morning I was a mess. Took me 3 hours to get off the couch.

Long story short I just didn't feel like drinking it since October 15. But right now I've got a glass going, and WOW. It's really good! It's also developed a bit of a sparkle to it - I guess 5 weeks in primary wasn't long enough to complete fermentation 100%. It's not fully carbed or anything, so I don't need to worry about bombs, but there's a slight fizz that's really nice.

Gonna get another batch happening soon. This will be necessary in the summer.

you get acetaminophen poisoning from taking Tylenol while drinking, not from drinking plenty of water when you stop drinking, than taking Tylenol and hitting the sack.

Who told you this? They are silly. Your liver is still working to process the alcohol in your bloodstream.

From some website that I didn't save long enough to link to......"Combining heavy drinking with aspirin or ibuprofen (such as Advil) may promote gastrointestinal bleeding."

Holy Cripes!!! They'll both kill ya'. I think I'd rather have a headache.

I find that stopping drinking a couple hours before bed, copious amounts of water then oatmeal, coffee, and a banana for breakfast is the way to go. Maybe some tylenol before going to work if you're still feeling foul.

Alcohol intoxication - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
If you are an alcoholic who has no ability to control yourself who takes more Tylenol than they should every night you have something to worry about.

If you drink like a normal person or not to the brink of retard intoxication and take a Tylenol or two with water before bed, your going to be fine.

I don't know about that. When I worked in an ICU one of the GI docs stated that if you drink at all avoid acetaminophen.
