A few tips on how to deal with alcohol...
Quote:
A common after-effect of alcohol intoxication is the unpleasant sensation known as a hangover, but why do we get a hangover? These symptoms are partly due to the toxic products produced from alcohol digestion and partly due to general dehydration. Dehydration causes the brain to shrink away from the skull slightly. Other components of the hangover are thought to come from the various other chemicals in an alcoholic drink such as the tannins in red wine and the result of various metabolic processes of alcohol in the body. The brain is the organ most sensitive to alcohol. It also receives less oxygen when alcohol is present, which adds to the feeling of fatigue the following morning.

We're not arguing dehydration causes headaches, we're agreeing.

That's a bad site to reference, though... one should preferentially cite peer-reviewed science when discussing physiology on the Internets. There are a lot of quacks on the Web.

Also, I stand corrected: the brain does shrink with dehydration.

Learn something every day!

True, but I go a step farther and say any hangover effect can be avoided with a clean drink, snacks high in potassium, and rehydration.

I'm not sure how to post my own comment being new to the site:-) ... could any one help me with a H.BREW qusetion on red wine?? If after secondary fermentation I decide to bottle it, place it in the freezer to kill the yeast and then warm it a little now the yeast is dead. After warming it pace it back into a demijohn and add a hell load of sugar, leave it to rest with a airlock... would I now get sweet wine?? Or would the yeast start to work again and maybe effect flavour.. H.BREW wine is a great idea but it tends to become very bitter and lack the real rich flavour I'm looking for.. could anyone tell me how to reach this flavour without added chemicals, etc:-) :-) :-) :-)
