Could be that if your use to drinking BMC at ~4% and your now drinking Homebrew that is a much higher ABV (depending on what you are brewing) it could just be that catching up with you.

My anti-hangover cure is to take two aspirin and drink about a quart of water before bed. If I'm drinking liquor, I'll try to drink a cup of water for every 1-2 shots.

Sucks about the homebrew hangovers, though... I haven't had one of those yet, but my guess would be fusels. The B-vitimins in the yeast should be helping, but I guess not enough...

There's the potential of being shot for saying this, but I've never had a real session with my homebrews. I have so many friends that request it, that I'm rarely left with more than a 6'er for myself. Of those 6, I try to stretch them out as long as possible. I might have 2 in one night but those are usually stretched out between commercial brews. I shouldn't be so generous with the next batch.

My fermentation temps don't get above 22C, is that too warm?
