I've never drank home brew. I would say it would have to taste better than beer made and in the heat and cold and a month old. I hate to drink beer and have that after taste like Budweiser. I like a crisp taste with no after taste. I know draft beer taste better. I am going to start brewing beer and I guess the thing to do is just experiment. Has anyone added lemon juice or experimented and got a good tasting beer? I quit drinking beer and the last 12 years have drank wine and vodka, but they have sugar and I want to get away from that.

Welcome!

I'm not sure exactly what you're experiencing as "after taste", but most people start brewing their own beer because they want something more flavorful and more diverse than Bud. But, I should warn you: like wine and vodka, beer is made from sugars.

Welcome!

Certain beers are gonna have some awesome aftertastes and some very bad one (like bud in your taste) however as you discover new styles you'll know what you like.

I recommend going back and trying different styles of beer before you start brewing

I was pretty sure vodka didn't really have anything except ethanol and water (plus some trace stuff) so I googled it, and while you can't believe everything you see on the internet (Abe Lincoln) there were plenty of sites saying vodka had no sugar in it. So, not sure what you are going for here.

1g carb is 4calories, 1 gram protein is 4 calories, 1 gram of fat is 9 calories, 1 gram of alcohol is 7 calories.

A standard drink is 10 grams, so 70 calories. (ex vodka)

While it isn't technically a sugar, proof being alcohol won't knock you out of Ketosis if you are on a low carb diet, it is worse than that because your body focuses on filtering that alcohol gram over anything else.

Your best option is 5 ounces of wine per night. Second would be 12 ounces of dark beer.

The most fun is 5 ounces of Vodka though.

If you ask me Budweiser in those cans is nasty. Of course, you can drink beer after it's been in the floor board for six months and any would taste bad.

I find the best way is to drink as much water as you can after you finish and then when you get up. I also find when I put ice in my beer it makes things better. I get some flack when I put ice in my beer

If you're planning getting hammered, then drink a tall glass of water after each beer/glass of wine/shot of liquor.

Water. And, for the record, I am giving you flak right now for ice in your beer

The water really helps; a big part of a hangover seems to be dehydration. I also read somewhere that drinking depletes a specific vitamin (b maybe?) So sometimes I will take a multivitamin before bed too
