Default Collar bone pain after drinking homemade cider

Hello,

I'm trying to make homemade cider these days. I'm here to ask if did i just make something wrong?

I have mixed apple juice and sugar and started fermentation with this, using yeast. After four days, i just wanted to taste that.

It was pretty alcoholic, but after drinking that, i felt pain near collar bone. That was a worrying experience for me. I threw up and the pain was over.

Now I want to know where I am wrong. I researched a bit about this and people tell me that I must filter the yeast before drinking. So, was bacteria the reason of my pain?

Here are photos of the drink.

And I took a video of the fermentation

It's my professional medical opinion that you are undergoing a transformation into a minotaur.

Are you fermenting in a wine bottle?


Am I really feeding a troll?

Find a different hobby... have you considered stamp collecting? No wait that night be too hard on the shoulder. Maybe you should consider moping around, I hear that is easy on the collar bone.

You wish you were trolling?....

Ferment til it clears or gravity readings tell you it is done.

Without getting into a definition of cider argument you can add sugar although it may take on different names...cider, hard cider, apple wine...etc. There is a pretty popular thread for an apple based beverage with added sugar...edworts apfelwein.

Sorry, about the unhelpful response, but your post is well... odd, but I'll go along.

you shouldn't be drinking any recipe I know of after 4 days. You should check the specific gravity with a hydrometer after it has had a chance to ferment. Sounds like you are doing an apflewein, they usually take about 6 weeks according to Edwort's recipe.

Once the gravity is stable for 3 days, the primary fermentation is over, and it's ready for bottling, clearing, etc...

I haven't heard of some one getting a sore shoulder and throwing up from homebrew before, not that it couldn't happen I guess. Remember, correlation is not causation, the events you describe all could have been unrelated. Just saying.

But with out knowing more about the specifics of your process, like cleaning and sanitation, what type of yeast, temperatures, etc... I mean if you didn't have fairly sanitary water to begin with, there might have been something else unrelated to the yeast. But usually things like that are not remedied quickly by throwing up once.

Most people on here do not filter their beer as far as I know. I have made apfelwein and it was very clear after about 5 weeks.

Over all your post suggests you might want to do some more reading, try browsing the stickies in the beginners and cider forums, there are lots of good techniques described there.

There is a book by an author named John Palmer available free on line too. It's very good, if a little out of date.

Good luck
