Got hammered last night on my 1st batch of homebrew. It was a cider and i let it get to 16%. I got drunk. I mean slobbering, stumbling, forget wtf i did drunk. And i've gotten used to having the worst hangover from those occasions. But when i woke up this morning I was amazed. I just keep thinking wtf. I have no hangover.


Is it becuase i'm making a higher quality brew than im used to buying from the store?

What gives?

Pretty sure it's the lack of over-processing with chemicals and sugars, end result is little to no fusel alcohols.

Hmmm....

I don't know.
Repeat the experiment, and track the variables.

Might take you a while. I hope you don't operate machinery.

Serious, it could be:
No sugar or preservatives in your brew
You drank a lot of water you don't remember
You had just the right amount and kind of food in your stomach
You slept through your hangover
You have achieved transendance

Wow! If you figure it out please post it. I drank four 22 oz bottles of my 14% bourbon cider and couldn't talk. And the hangover was a killer... Wish I knew what causes some to be worse than others.

You ate Tylenol thinking they were jelly beans.

You woke up and put Alka-Seltzer in your first glass of wine.

Seriously, you probably are not dehydrated. Good quality alcohol and sleep helps quote a bit.

+1 You have achieved transcendence

Seriously though it's probable the lack of chemicals in homebrew that cause hangovers to be much less severe. Regardless I still try to drink in moderation...a 3 day hangover will teach you that. Or at least it taught me that...
