Have you ever drunk enough of your own homebrew to get sick? Did you notice a difference between your own thick, flavorful brew and commercial beer as it came back up? I know this isn't a tasteful ( no pun intended) question, but it is a valid one. Last July 3rd, I came home after a long hot day at work. It had been something like 10000 degrees that day, and I was looking forward to the large party we were throwing the next day. I hammered down a couple of forties of my amber ale a little too fast, and they bounced back on me. Nothing like a pronounced hop bitterness in your vomit!
Can't say it was a good experience.

I'm lucky and never "spew" from drinking so I can't provide input. But I did feel the need to reply to this with a in hopes others would respond.

I actually think the last time I yacked was in the early 80's and was "normal sick". Sometimes I wish I could, but it just doesn't happen for me. Call me lucky or an alcoholic...

I have not chucked beer since my 20s which was enough. Threw up a curry in the morning a few months ago which wasn't too unpleasant - nice and tasty - curries are always better the second day.

I would imagine that it would be better than chucking BMC. Although due to the thicker consistency it would be harder to clear the nasal passages.

BTW if you want to learn to vomit easily without getting it up your nose - watch how cats bring up furballs and remember to keep your back and neck as straight as possible.

Whenever I puke beer, it's usually still cold.
So I got that going for me.
Which is nice.

I never thought about it before, but I've never spewed with homebrew. Commercial brew, sure many times in my college days, but never the homebrew.

As a general rule, if you're going to get sick for any reason (flu, drunk, whatever), one thing I learned that helps me out....

Eat some powdered Jell-O.

Tastes good going down (like a powdered SweetTart), and it maintains the flavor on the way back up. Can't taste the vomit at all.

Plus, it's really cool to see yourself spewing bright red vomit...

I spewed bright red vomit once. Although it wasn't from Jell-O. It was from a bleeding ulcer.

I'd been having some intense stomach pains for about a month, but it would usually pass fairly quickly. Didn't see a need to go to the doctor. Then one night during curtain call (I do some acting in the community theatre), I felt a strong urge to vomit. I managed to wait until the curtain was nearly down, then did a sprint to the back stage restroom. The theatre is in a community college and they had some student's "art" work stored in the dressing room/restroom. Didn't quite make it to the toilet. It looked kind of like a murder scene. Blood spattered the walls and the paintings.

Needless to say, I went to the doctor the next day.

Proud to also include myself in the Rarely Puke club. Last time was a couple of years ago from a puking flu that plagued my area. I can barely remember the last time I puked from drinking...probably St Patty's Day about 4-5 years ago when I allowed some idiots to feed me Jaeger shots. Nowadays, I'm quick to pass out, but not to puke.
